Immunisations (pre-school)

Service overview

Before starting school your child should receive all of the immunisations listed below to protect them from the most dangerous childhood diseases.

You can get your baby and children immunised at your GP surgery, which will usually be done by the practice nurse. They will check the consent form and ensure your child is well and able to have their immunisations that day. If your child is unwell, you will be given a new appointment.

Please take your Personal Child Health Record ('red book') with you so your child's record can be updated.

If your child has missed any of the vaccinations for any reason, please contact your GP surgery, who can book your child in.
