Child Health - Immunisation

It is very important that your child is protected against dangerous childhood diseases such as Polio and Whooping Cough. Even common illnesses such as measles can have very serious complications. We strongly encourage you to have your child immunised following this schedule below

Children’s immunisations are administered by one of our Practice Nurses on Monday afternoons. You will normally be notified when your child is due the injections. Adverse reactions are very rare but as a precaution we advise patients to remain for 20 minutes following immunisation. If you have any

Queries please discuss this with your doctor or health visitor
