    Wow that must have changed in the last few years. We got many of ours done a few days early because of travelling.

    We took DS for his first needles at 6 weeks, so when we booked him in for his 4 month ones they allowed us to bring him in 2 days early. They said it was fine as long as there was at least 2 months in between.

    They wouldn't let me get DD's 18 month ones a few days early (due to Easter holidays). They tried telling me the reason was that Centrelink would cut my payments.

    The only one I've so far found that can be given early is the 4yo needle which can be given from 3.5yrs apparently. All others my gp's have said there must be the minimum 2mth gap between 2, 4 & 6mth shots and minimum 6mths between the 12 & 18mth shots. (We were with a different gp when dd was having hers too so that seemed consistent advice)

    DD3 had her first lot of needles today at 6 weeks and 1 day. I was told today that 4 month and 6 month needles have to be done on or after these milestones by the nurse and the first lot is the only lot that has the 2 week window. You will have to discuss it with your doctor or nurse.

    Boy things have changed since my kids were babies. I can't remember them being that strict.

    Prems immunisation dates are calculated from their actual date of birth, not due date.
