    I don't remember being told anything about this, how does it happen, do we have to book appointments ourselves?

    I've had notifications for all of Oscars x

    Edit - Think that the HV talked to us about this at his 6 week check and that she sent off a form or something, not sure now, can't remember totally but check with your HV at his check and they'll know how it works in your area xx

    I wasnt told anything and ended up having his eight week jabs at about 12 weeks. I had to book myself and they were very busy. I haven't been sent anything for his second set, but should be four weeks after. Looks like i'll have to get in touch again, i tried to do it on the day but they only had diary for one week ahead!!!

    I was supposed to but I didn't, i'm still thinking about it. How about you?

    They only mentioned it when he got the 5 in 1, it was supposed to have been discussed at six week check up - as they have the BCG first!

    We got our appointments in the post but I was told by our surgery that if I didn't get a letter to just show up at the right age on the day they run the vaccination clinic and they'll just do it there and then.

    I was given a letter by the HV with an appointment to get it done when she came around after the midwives discharged me and yes I had it done as she kept telling me how very important it was to have it done, was asking you because Jacob had it done as his first one, was born in October and had it done in November and it only left a little dot which I thought was great but now it's a big red lump and was going ask if yours was the same if you had it done :)
