Routine childhood vaccinations are a simple, safe and effective way of protecting children against harmful childhood diseases. Providing the child and parents are well and not displaying symptoms of coronavirus or other infections, children should have routine childhood immunisations as normal. The practice is taking the appropriate measures to minimise the risks by reducing people coming into the surgery. Please telephone to book an appointment if notified. It's important that vaccines are given on time for the best protection, but if you or your child miss a vaccine, contact your GP to catch up.
