    im sure its the new one that has just came out, im surprised colby is going for it so soon too i rang the HV and she said its ok aslong as she has all her other jabs up to date wich she has then their is no reason for her not to go for it

    i thought you would be waiting a couple of months because they would want to do the children that turned 2 first.

    Has colby only just finish having her other ones

    i got a letter from the NHS about 2 weeks ago giving the facts but didnt read it as i thought it would be ages away before she would get it and there we go shes to go for it on the 28th. Ive sent lucy a pm on the other forum because olivia isnt much older than colby and she only lives about 20 mins from me to see if O has either had hers or is getting it done to, maybe its just some places who have got all the stuff to do it at the moment im not sure though

    I saw something about this on TV the other day...
    I didn't really listen to what they were saying though,
    But they seemed to think that people would be rushing to try and get them for some crazy reason!

    Your Local Health Authority might just be very organised!

    If i had a LO they would defo be having it

    Alisha has just turned 2 so I don't think she'll get it. This next one will tho. I'm just alittle concerned that we seem to be giving so many vaccinations. When they brought in the last mn=eningitis vaccine I woorried that it will eradicate one strain but make the other srains stronger and more common. Now they've brought this new one out i do wonder if this is the case. Don't get me wrong I'm all for vaccinations and my kids have had all there jabs I just wonder if were a bit over zealous
