Letters: Clarifying age groups for pre-school booster jab

I was sorry to see that your Basics guide suggests the pre-school booster should be given at four to five years when the CMO letters recommend it is given from three years four months.

I feel your guide should have been more definite about the timing of immunisations as they are done mainly by GPs.

- Dr Louise Newson apologises for any confusion. The article should have stated that pre-school booster should be given from the age of 3 years 4 months to 5 years rather than 4-5 years.
