Flu nasal spray and MMR urgent advice please!

My 5 year old is due to have the flu nasal spray tomorrow. Was just filling the consent form when I came to the question: has your child had 2 doses of MMR?

My daughter had only 1 dose of MMR so does that mean she should not have the flu spray until she's had the 2nd dose of MMR?

I don't understand why the form asks if 2 doses of MMR has been given, what does the flu spray got to do with the MMR and why don't they just ask if all immunisations were up to date?

Has anyones child had just 1 dose of MMR and also had the nasal flu spray?

It is an odd question. The flu vaccine can be give regardless of MMR vaccination status.

Perhaps they're asking so that they can offer the MMR vaccination if needed.

That's what I thought.
