The importance of childhood immunisations should not be underestimated.
The surgery has many ways to ensure your child has its correct immunisations; every baby has a record, which is completed when the child has each of its injections. A number of checks are made prior to immunisation to ensure the child is fit enough to be immunised on that day.
Notification of when the immunisations are due will be sent to you. However, if you have recently moved or think your child is overdue for immunisation, please contact the surgery. The practice believes it is very important to ensure that all children are immunised against all potentially serious illnesses.
For more information and a schedule of the immunisation programme is available on the NHS website.
