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 is the most effective way of keeping them protected against infectious diseases and helping to minimise the risk of infection.
Vaccinations at the right age can protect infants, children and teenagers against potentially harmful diseases that can be very serious.
St Mary’s Surgery offers the full schedule of childhood immunisations and strongly recommends them all.
Parents are invited to bring their babies to our baby clinic for their first immunisations at about eight weeks of age. Reminders are sent out by Child Health.
Please try not to postpone these first vaccinations because it is important to ensure baby is protected as soon as possible.
