Child Health and Vaccinations

The childhood vaccinations are now given at the recommended intervals to protect small babies from diphtheria, tetanus, polio, whooping cough, measles, mumps, rubella, HiB and meningococcal meningitis. 

There are weekly immunisation sessions for all childhood vaccinations. Your child should receive an appointment card directly from the child health department.
We ask mothers of all newly registered children under 5 to provide us with details of previous immunisations so that we can offer to complete the full course of vaccinations.

The doctors and health visitors carry out developmental checks by appointment for babies aged 6 weeks, 8 months and toddlers aged 3 years.
