Baby and Child Immunisations

Newborn vaccinations and schedule

When you have your baby the Practice will be notified and an appointment will be sent out to you for your postnatal check, baby newborn check and vaccinations.

The schedule of vaccinations will be explained to you at your first appointment and the Nurse will book you in for future appointments.

A relative or carer can bring baby for the immunisations as long as you have given consent for this.

Please remember to bring your red book with you.

Child Immunisations

Children have an immunisations schedule and Child Health (NHS) will contact you directly to remind you to book in for the appointment.

Immunisation appointments are with the Practice nurse and can be booked up to 3 weeks in advance.

There are catch-up immunisation programmes running throughout the year.

Please note, some vaccinations are intended to be given at school and we cannot give some of these in Practice until after the schedule has passed (as a catch up).

New for 2023/24 – The PCN Nurse Hub appointments will be available on a Saturday to book into for child immunisations. Please ask at reception for more information.
