    Default Immunisations- ok to do early?

    Is it ok to book my dd2 in for 6 month needles 2 days before she's actually due? She was 6 days over if that makes a difference.
    Dh will have that week off work so I'd like to book a day where he can come and help.

    I believe they won't do them until the day they turn the age for the needles

    I know my GP is super strict on dates and will not do it even a day early... Not sure the reasoning and if it is a standard or not.

    From my experience and other parents I've spoken to - nope they will not do them early, not even a day early.

    Ok I'll just have to do the kid wrangling on my own again lol.
    My usual nurse isn't on that day anyway so probably a blessing.

    Wow. I did not think it would matter. You can call and ask them?

    I tried this morning but the phones were busy. I will try again later. I just wonder because she was overdue it might make a difference, I mean those who were born early would be under the official 6 months, yes? That's why I'm surprised too.

    Update- nope they won't.
    In fact as she had her 4 month vax 2 days late there needs to be a minimum 2 month window between vax so I need to wait until she's a few days over.
    I'm surprised this isn't made more clear.

    Note: for the 6months, there is a strict timeframe for rotavirus. DS is due few days after we are leaving town so we have to wait until we come back. we r going away for a while so when we come back, we have to get him vax shortly after before the deadline.

    It might vary everywhere but if I get them done through the clinic they write the date in the blue book that they can be done after - they should do this everywhere, it makes it much easier!
