Childhood Vaccinations


One of the most important things that a parent can do for their child is to make sure that they have all their routine childhood vaccinations. It's the most effective way of keeping them protected against infectious diseases.

 

Ideally, kids should have their jabs at the right age to protect them as early as possible and minimise the risk of infection.


Vaccination Checklist

 

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