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.
Our Childhood Immunisations are held every Wednesday from 1.40pm - 3.00pm organised by the Practice Nurses.
Please call the surgery to make an appointment.
If you are not the parent of the baby, and you are bringing him/her on behalf of a parent, please ensure that you have been given written consent saying the nurse has permission to immunise the child. Without consent, the nurse will be unable to continue with the appointment.
