Pardon my cl hat..I am in a hurry this morning and forgot to log off and log back in.
My question is this. I have a 5 y.o. who just went for his last set of immunizations before school starts--not my idea, but mandatory for school. Anyway, that aside, the drs office gave him the wrong polio vaccine. They gave him the initial oral (supposed to be stronger from what I understand from the doctors office) instead of the booster. They called me this morning in a panic because of the goof up. They want me to bring him back in for yet another polio booster.
How do I know for sure that this isn't going to hurt my child to be vaccinated again with the same vaccine (okay not exactly the same) in such a short amount of time? I would think if the oral is supposed to be stronger, it should work just as well if not better than the booster--am I wrong?
