    Hi all

    i am after some information on these vaccines.
    Me and hubby have couple of days off work end of month so booked little man in for then so i can be with him and not send him nursery.
    At 1 year they are much more aware since last jabs i was wondering how many times they are going to prick him :-( i am dreading it, and after first one he is gonna be hysterical never mind jabbing him again
    also how were your little ones after theirs and when are next ones?

    Thanks x

    My LO is booked in for hers on 29th. She's just had her 2nd dose of flu jab too!
    She will be having:

    Meningitis C, third dose
    Hib, fourth dose (Hib/MenC given as a single jab)
    MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), given as a single jab
    Pneumococcal infection, third dose

    So she will be having 3 needles (I think!)

    After this, she has her yearly flu jab, possibly the rsv jab too and then her pre school boosters between 3yrs & 5yrs

    I'm in the uk, Luke had his about 3 weeks ago. There is 3 needles in total, the mmr which is the one that can give a reaction goes into a leg on it's own. My nurse had all the needles all ready and had all 3 done within seconds, she was really good. He cried really bad for about a minute, then it was all forgotten. I was really worried about the side effects after reading some posts on here, they normally start 5-7 days after but we have had nothing at all so have so far been really lucky! The next injections after are 3 1/2 i think, someone please correct me if I'm wrong! Good luck x

    My LO has just had his at 14m (had to delay due to cold and coughs). He had 3 jabs - 1 in each arm and 1 in a leg. I was shocked it was so many, i thought maybe it would be 2. The nurse had all the needles and plasters ready and was really quick, he whimpered for the first, cried for the 2nd and full on screamed for the 3rd but only for a few mins. I was worried about the side effects but he didnt really suffer from any. We had a few disturbed nights but as he has always been a rubbish sleeper Im not sure if it was down to the jabs or not.

    zak had 3 at 14 months, his mmr and 2 others which i think were Meningitis, he had all 3 in his legs, there was 2 nurses so they counted to 3 and stuck them all in at the same time, they were defo his worse injections so far and they did upset us both (both left cryin) but i was greatful he was able to get the injections as there so many sick babies in other countries that dot have the opportunity......tell urself this wen ur tryin to stop the tears lol xx
