Childhood Immunisation Programme
Information about vaccination of children from birth to 16 years.
Here is an overview of when your child will be offered vaccines as part of the Childhood Immunisation Programme.
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.
A vaccine activates our immune system without making us sick. Many dangerous infectious diseases can be prevented in this simple and effective way.
