Childhood immunisations

Immunisation is the safest and most effective way of protecting your child against serious diseases.

Your child should have his or her first immunisation when he or she is two months old. Your health visitor, practice nurse or GP will make an appointment with you, or they will send you an appointment inviting you to bring your child for immunisation.

Most surgeries and health centres run special immunisation or baby clinics and there is often a ‘drop in’ facility at other times for parents who can’t get to the clinic during the day. Remember, all childhood immunisations are free.
