One of the most important things that a parent can do for their child is to make sure that they have all their routine childhood vaccinations. It's the most effective way of keeping them protected against infectious diseases.
Ideally, children should have their jabs at the right age to protect them as early as possible and minimise the risk of infection.
Find out which jabs your child needs, when they need them, and what the benefits of each jab are.
Please note that if the parent cannot attend with the child then written parental consent must be given to the person bringing in the child so that they can hand it to the nurse before the vaccination is given.
Please call the surgery to make an appointment.
