My kids have been spiked a lot recently (aged 3 and 1) and they’re able to handle it like a boss. I don’t really remember getting them before high school (but I obviously did) but I remember getting them then and the bravado and namecalling that occurred during them.
The BDG (tuberculosis) one was the biggest laugh - all the previous higher up years are making us shit ourselves. Today walk in the park in the end.
The Diptheria/Polio one (with the tongue drop and sugar cube) was a mess. We weren’t told it was happening, but rumblings of some folk that had friends who went to the Catholic school suggested we knew something was up. We got changed for PE and then headed to the assembly hall before getting the jags and then being sent on a 5km cross country run. What a palaver. Was well dialled up (@meowington’s finest there).
Any horror stories? We had one kid who passed the BCG skin test and didn’t need the vaccination, so obviously the neds decided they were “gay” and their “gayness” was repelling the TB. Man, high school was terrible wasn’t it.
