Q.

Immunisation

Hi There

My son is turning 6 in just over a week. He has not yet had all his Immunisations (has' nt had them from 9 month). Everytime I took him for it, the sister at the clinic would tell me that his chest does' nt sound right or he has a runny nose. They could never do it because of that.

Is it by any chance possible that he could still have them at his age, or is there maybe an all in one injection he could have as a replacement for them.

Touch wood, he' s been fine so far, but I don' t know if it could affect him in the long run.

Please advise A.S.A.P.

Thanx alot

Your son definitely needs to have his immunisations.He was due for a booster at 5 years. Speak to the clinic sister about measles imminisation as well.
