We believe that it is extremely important that you have your child vaccinated.  We will generally send you a reminder by post and encourage you to make an appointment for your child.  If you have concerns over the safety of any of the immunisations, or any other questions then come in and have a chat with one of us.

This schedule is periodically reviewed and updated by the government as new vaccines are developed
