Would clinics that do the single injections check immunity levels? I dont mind having to pay. I'm going to hold off on giving it at the moment anyway because he's only three, and I have till before he starts school at 5.
The immunisology dept just gave my GP the spiel about how the get the boosters because the original can wear off in 10-20 years etc so they recommend giving it ...

I asked my health visitor about this a while back and was told the same that they couldn't / wouldn't test for it on the NHS as there was nowhere to send it.
I am in the process of having my sons boosters seperately (one left to go) and use a private company to do this. He has 3 months between each one. I know that they also will test immunity although obviously it will cost.
I will PM you with the company name as I'm not sure if I am allowed to endorse it on here I know they do clinics all over the place.
