Child Immunisation


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