Not sure anyone remembers this, but when we were at the old-old place (aka the original place most of us met) I was concerned when my son started school at 4. I worried he would be jabbed for every mosquito bite. My GP was quite insistent I send an epi-pen to school, and his opinion was that nobody wants to stick a needle in a kid and if any teacher ever uses it, he would definitely need it.  (And if not, it wouldn’t harm him anyway.)
