Immunisations


Vaccination Checklist

 

For an overview of vaccinations, see NHS choices

 

 

Under Fives

 

 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, kids should have their jabs at the right age to protect them as early as possible and minimise the risk of infection.

 

Details of the current regime can be found here  

 

Teenagers

 

There are further vaccinations to complete courses that were started before school and to give protection for other illnesses such as HPV (for girls only).

For further details click here

 

 65 and over:

 

  • Flu (every year)
  • Pneumococcal
  • Shingles

Vaccines For Risk Groups

 

People who fall into certain risk groups may be offered extra vaccines. These include people who have a long term illness such as diabetes, coeliac disease or asthma. You may need extra vaccines due to the work that you do or because you are living with someone who is immunosuppressed.

Examples are vaccinations against diseases such as hepatitis B, tuberculosis (TB), seasonal flu and chickenpox
