I have a serious post, no seriously, I do! I DO!
I had a visit to the nurse at our doctors last week re a woman’s er, three year thingie, screening do hicky and she said that they’d had a letter about my re-vaccinations.
I had considered not having them but I hadn’t really looked into it and naiviley thought it was the ones I remembered like measles, TB and the one on the sugar cube.
Apparently it’s not it’s the following
Pneumococcal – pneumonia, meningitis and blood infections
Haemophilus influenza conjugate – meningitis, bacterial pneumonia, and infections of the blood, bones, and joints
Diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis – well that would be diphtheria, tetanus and it turns out whooping cough
Inactivated polio (I wonder if this is still on a sugar cube – probably not, someone would get sued for rotting teeth)
and then annual vaccinations for both me and B (HAH) whilst I remain immunocompromised of
So I would like your opinions – have you, haven’t you, do you intend to if you are in that position or even if you’re not your views on vaccination. You can either leave a comment or if you prefer to do it privately in case you just want to say ‘For goodness sake woman just get them done – don’t be a baby about it!’ (Get it – baby, as they are for my new baby immune system and the letter says I can have the neonatal brands!) my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
And remember this is serious – there may be lollipops riding on it if I get them done and am a good girl whilst having them!
