    Is that doable or is it recommended to do it separately?
    They recommend separately for meningococcal B as it can cause a high fever. DD1 was sent home from care 24hrs after the vaccination and missed the next day too. She

    Thanks everyone for your experiences. I've booked my kids in to get it next week.

    DS just had the booster (third dose) last week. So had them at 5, 7 and 20 months (should have been 13 months but we delayed until we had the cash to spare!). He did get a fever for about 24 hours from the first 2, but that was no different to his regular 2/4/6/12 month shots. He was slightly warm, I wouldn't even call it a fever, for the rest of the day after the third one. Pretty easy!
    The cost is annoying though, we're lucky to just have the one baby!

    So I never ended up getting DS done (even though I intended to). I asked his doctor about it and he told me that he doesn't think it's necessary and that if it was him, he wouldn't give it to his kids. He basically said he thinks it's better to just try to build up his immune system and practice good hygiene. So now I don't know what to think. I'm all for vaccination normally but I don't want to do it if it's not necessary given that this one has shown some bad side effects.

    I might need to go get a second opinion I think.

    Wow my doctor practically wouldn't let us leave without it as he had a 2 year old child present with a fever to his office and he sent them to emergency and it was too late. I'm so glad my son has it and I don't think hygiene and natural immunity come into it. Get a second opinion

    Yes I wouldn't have thought natural immunity would come into play? And as for hygiene good luck... Kids are always touching things

    Our DD has her appt on Wednesday. I'm so relieved we will finally be able to afford to get it done!

    Yeah I thought it was a weird thing to say about a toddler. I mean, you boost your immune system by eating well and looking after yourself. Good luck getting my kid to eat vegetables. And yeah hygiene lol, kids are so good at that.

    Definitely going to see someone else about it and see if I can get a better explanation at least.
