Q.

8/9 year old missed 6 year immunisation

Please advise if I can still take my daughter for the 6 year iminsation or is it too late? I was of the impression that it was done at the pre-school.
Thanks

You are correct this immunisation is usually done at 6 years with another booster at 12 years. You can take your daughter to your local clinic and still have the '6 year' booster done.
