That's a bit scary. Glad you and your friend were able to remind the nurse about what she should have done already...

That is terrible. Is there someone higher-up to whom to report this? It is potentially dangerous ignorance!

You're correct, your daughter shouldn't have live attenuated vaccines. She can have the vaccine by injection though. It might be prudent to have your GP have this added as an alert then when they pull up her records on the screen it will be noted. Maybe this statement from the NRAS will be useful too if this happens again nras.org.uk/statement-about...
