Information for parents and schoolchildren
When will your child be offered vaccines?
Here is an overview of when your child will be offered vaccines as part of the Childhood Immunisation Programme.
Before and after vaccination
Before the vaccination, the public health nurse will ask whether the child is healthy and if there were any reactions after previous vaccines. Most children show little or no reactions to vaccines.
Why is vaccination so important?
A vaccine activates our immune system without making us sick. Many dangerous infectious diseases can be prevented in this simple and effective way.
