Q.

injections

Morning

Just wanted to know... Baby went for her 9mnt injection today. Somehow, I forgot to take her for the 14week ones. They gave it to her now as well. Is that OK.

However, I am sure I took her for the 14week ones. I think they forgot to sign her chart. The nurse said that if that had happened, giving her it again won't do anything.

There is no 14 week immunisation, only ones at 12 weeks and 18 weeks. At 9 months she is due for her measles immunisation which she had yesterday. She should not have had any other immunisations with the measles one, it is usually given alone.
