IMMUNISATIONS AND VACCINATIONS

During a pandemic it is more important than ever to keep up with infant, child and adult immunisations to prevent outbreaks of other diseases.

Essential, routine vaccinations like the MMR jab can save a child’s life.

As long as those attending appointments, including parents of babies or children, do not have symptoms or are not self-isolating because someone in the household is displaying symptoms, all scheduled vaccinations should go ahead as normal.  Delaying vaccination increases the risk of serious diseases, having vaccines at the right time gives your child the best protection.

Parents and carers should check their child's Red Book or NHS UK to make sure they are up to date with all their vaccinations. 

Infants who are 1 year of age need their 1 year booster immunisations and MMR to protect them against measles, mumps and rubella.

Children also need their pre-school boosters before they start primary school.

Please contact us if your child is overdue for their vaccinations and make a planned appointment.
