    Sorry, but what does chickenpox have to do with Hep A? I thought they were two different types of things and chickenpox immunisation is given at 18 months. My DD is just over 2 1/2 and I haven't immunised her yet for Hep A. Going to do next week.

    Dr also said that she was too old at 2 to get BCG. Doesn't work he said. Have others found this?

    Thanks

    Very confusing posts.
    I'm not sure what chicken pox has to do with Hepatitis either.
    Are you confusing the Hep A vaccine with the Varicella?

    You can have the BCG as an adult, so I don't see why your Dr said 2 yrs is too old.

    I had BCG when I was 14 years old - so maybe the baby dose doesn't work, but there is certainly an adult one.

    Both Hep A and chicken pox (yes 2 separate vaccines, I think the confusion is that I mentioned them at the same time....) are kind of "extra" in Hong Kong. They are not given by public clinics, but private doctors recommend them.

    I think i can see how the post may be confusing!

    I didnt say they were the same thing.

    Someone just posted that they had to have the two immunisations when they got to HK so just making the point that my little one would not need the chickenpox!
