Q.

Vitamin A Capsule

Doctor, I received a letter from my 17 month olds creche today so say that Dept Health will be giving Vitamin A capsules to the kids from 8-20 Sept.
Are these drops or injections ?
My daughter is on creche guard, singulair, zyrtec and scotts emulsion does she really need this ?

Not if she is having Scotts emulsion which has a high Vitamin A content. Your daughter should definitely not have the Vitamin A drops.
