Inoculations / vaccinations

Kids in France have lovely records of all their jabs. Ours don't. The doctor keeps them.

Not only that. Kids in France have their BCG (anti-TB) earlier than ours do.

So Pat telephoned our doctor to see if our kids could have their BCG before they went.

"We don't do it," denied the doctor. "You'll have to contact the respiratory nurse at Wrexham Maelor Hospital."

"There's a shortage", breathed the respiratory nurse. "Even kids who are due to have it can't."

So we were really pleased when this morning an appointment turned up to take the kids to Wrexham to have their BCG in a week's time. (The kids aren't so thrilled.)
