Child Immunisation

PLEASE RING AND BOOK AN APPOINTMENT AT THE PRACTICE WHEN YOU RECEIVE AN INVITE LETTER FOR YOUR CHILD’S VACCINATIONS.  The date/times you are given on the invite may not coincide with our clinic times

All new babies are invited for regular check-ups from eight weeks old. (A letter with a date and time invite will be sent for this appointment)

If a vaccine is given when a baby still has antibodies to the disease, the antibodies can stop the vaccine working. This is why routine childhood immunisations do not start until a baby is two months old, before the antibodies a baby gets from its mother have stopped working. This is also why it is important for parents to stick to the immunisation schedule, as a delay can leave a baby unprotected. A delay can increase the chance of adverse reactions to some vaccines, such as pertussis (whooping cough).
