I was just asking in relation to offering you some directed advice; not being at all interested in debating it. What politicians do with their own children in relation to infectious diseases (vaccinate, feed them burgers) is of absolutely no interest either.
However, in trying to help you I don't understand the advice you were given about "dd isn't at risk as she may already have some immunity". Did she already have an earlier single mumps vaccination..?
I started a thread about this a few months ago and what is really pissing me off is that they aren't telling parents that they don't have mumps vaccines and aren't going to get any. So they're giving refunds if people want them. But I just feel that's wrong. If I'd wanted only 2 vaccines, then I would have just paid for two.
At our clinic we pay as we go iykwim...BUT that doesn't help the fact that we wish we'd know 4 yrs ago (or even 2 yrs ago with ds) that this could happen...YET, not sure what our route would have been had we been told that..
Yes I did! There was a discount (not much but around 20 quid I think) if you got all three and seeing as that was what I wanted, I paid upfront. It has taken me months to get the money back too. I have just reported them to the Trading Standards Authority - I will be interested to see what happens.
Ah - interesting. I have just looked at their website and it now says in red letters on the home page of the vaccinations section that they cannot guarantee mumps availability. That's new and they haven't had any since last summer.
I am in the same situation-told by clinic that none will be available till 2010. TBH -less worried about the mumps thing-just glad they still have measles vaccin available-mealses kills-mumps doesn't (afaik)
@shhh: I wouldn't necessarily recommend this; but have you considered to have a blood sample taken from your DS and analysed to see whether she has seroconverted to mumps from the first vaccine? If she has, then perhaps you would have much less to worry about.
