Childhood Vaccinations

Childhood Vaccinations

It is very important that your child receives all its immunisations in order to protect their health now and in their future.

Vaccinations for your child are available by appointment with our practice nurses. If you wish to discuss the vaccinations before going ahead then the doctor or practice nurses are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Vaccinations start at 8 weeks.

The NHS provides a guide that can help you understand the vaccines offered in the UK and when to have them. It also explains how they work and why they're safe and important. To read the guide click here.

There's separate information on travel vaccinations

NHS vaccinations and when to have them

It's important that vaccines are given on time for the best protection, but if you or your child missed a vaccine, contact your GP to catch up.
