Find all the information you need to make an informed decision about immunisations
Some parents feel nervous about taking their baby for their immunisations. There have been lots of scare stories in the press and community.
Research proves to us that immunising children is one of the safest ways of protecting them from diseases that can threaten their life or long-term health.
This is one of the most important gifts you can give your child.
Your health visitor can help you find all the information you need to make an informed decision about immunisations. When the health visitor sees you when your baby is born she will bring you a booklet all about what is given, when and why.
You can download a pdf version of the booklet here.
The appointments for your baby’s immunisations are automatic. They will be administered by a practice nurse at the surgery where you and your baby are registered for Primary Health Care.
If you can not make the appointment sent to you, please contact the surgery to cancel and you will be sent another appointment.
