Childhood Immunisations

Who to See: All Nurses

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.

You can find out which jabs your child needs, when they need them, and what the benefits of each jab are by talking to your health visitor or by booking an appointment with one of the Nursing team.
