Childhood Immunisations

One of the most important things that a parent can do for their child is to make sure that they have all their routine childhood vaccinations. It's the most effective way of keeping them protected against infectious diseases.

Ideally, children should have their jabs at the right age to protect them as early as possible and minimise the risk of infection.
 
Find out which jabs your child needs, when they need them, and what the benefits of each jab are.

The practice believes in ensuring all parents are able to make an informed decision regarding the immunisation of their children. The emphasis is on parents to book appointments with enough notice to ensure vaccinations are given at the right time. You will be told by your doctor or nurse when the next immunisation is due for your child.
