Time off Preschool for children after innoculations

A warm welcome from me too.

Not something we have considered either. Children often come in after having their preschool jabs. I would say if a child begins to appear unwell, temperature etc, that we would ring the parents/carers to collect like any other ill child.:)

I seem to remember my GP saying that the children remain in the surgery for as long as it takes to see if there is going to be an allergic reaction to their immunisation - so anything coming along later is likely to be of a high temperature nature, or pain at the site of the injection. If parents need their child to return immediately to your setting you could ask them before hand to give their child a calpol dose just in case i suppose.

Yes, here too. It helps with 'normalcy'. I don't think there's any reason to keep a child off, unless their first injections have caused raised temperatures or something to keep an eye on. I think the only time it's caused an absence was if it was mid session and it was just easier to keep them off.

 

It reminds me of a joke I heard once, where a little boy was having an injection. He had it in his right arm, and asked the nurse if she would please put a plaster on his left arm. 'But why?' She asked, 'you need everyone to know you've had it in the other arm, so they will be careful and not bump it'. The boy replied 'you don't know the other children in my class!'

 

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations on making your first post, of many I hope!

Hello and welcome.

Ours come in as normal, and actually, this is one of the only times we will give calpol if needed.

I suppose- if you had other children with auto-immune can't think of the correct word problems you may need to reconsider?
