The childhood immunisations are now given in rapid succession at two, three and four months to protect small babies. It is very important that your child has these immunisations. There are very few reasons for not giving them. If you are concerned that your child should not have an immunisation on a particular day, perhaps because the child is unwell, please contact the surgery for a telephone consultation with one of the nursing team, so they can assess whether or not they should have the immunisation and discuss your concerns.
Having your child immunised will help reduce or prevent the risk of catching one of the infectious diseases. In order to keep our records up to date please remember to inform the practice team of any immunisations your child has had outside of our practice.
