18 Glasgow children given out of date jabs

    NHS Greater Glasgow has written to the parents of 18 children, between the ages of one and five, to ask them to contact their GP to make arrangements for their children to receive an additional vaccination.

    This is because, following a recent routine vaccination audit, it was discovered that the original vaccinations these children received were administered after their expiry date and the effectiveness of the vaccines cannot be guaranteed.

    The 18 children being asked back for additional vaccination are patients at nine separate GP practices.

    As a precautionary measure two children are to be revaccinated with the MMR vaccine and 16 for Polio.

    The children involved received their vaccinations between October 2003 and August 2004.
