Dear Lilmama
Usually premmies are immunised just before discharge. They may be too small and ill at birth. If she was immunised you can ask for her card at the hospital.

They never discussed it with me at her birth I think she was not ....If she was I think that her chances for survival would have been higher then she wouldnt have passed away.A friend of mines baby was also born preemie but weghed less then my baba and she recieved immunisations.Why did they not immunise my baby??
