Childhood Immunisations

Childhood immunisations are pre-bookable appointments which are generally held on Thursdays. Please phone reception to book an appointment.

Please ensure you bring your red book with you so that we can record the vaccines given on the day.

For the information regarding immunisations up to 13 months please click here. This webpage details all the immunisations, any side effects and frequently asked questions.

Here's a quick checklist of the vaccines that are routinely offered to everyone in the UK free on the NHS, and the age at which you should ideally have them.
