Immunisation Schedule


It is important that your child is fully immunised, so we have provided a schedule so that you can check that your child is kept up to date.

 

For comprehensive information on childhood immunisations in the UK, including translations of the schedule and information on all the vaccines and diseases protected against, please visit the NHS immunisation website.

 

If you are unable to attend an immunisation clinic, please remember to call us so an alternative date can be arranged.

 

Each vaccination is given as a single injection into the muscle of the thigh or upper arm.
