To gain a visa to live, study and work in South Africa we were required to have chest x rays to ensure we were free from TB.
Three years on and the kids have left South Africa, they didn’t need to have any checks to return to the UK and this puzzles me.
Surely living in South Africa we are more prone to TB than we were living in the UK.
Should the kids have been inoculated when they were here? Should we have had them also?
What jabs have the boys missed in the UK? Here there is no health visitor and if there is an equivalent ‘Red Book’ no one has ever mentioned it.
Does anyone else have a similar experience?
