Are your child's vaccinations up-to-date?

Reminder from the NHS  to get your child vaccinated over the Christmas holidays


We would like to remind parents of school aged children to  to keep up to date with their child’s vaccinations. This winter break from school presents a great opportunity to go out and get them vaccinated.


Most children aged 1-9 years old need to receive the polio vaccination to keep them safe from its devastating effects. Whilst it is urgent for your child to have the polio vaccination now, it is also important to check your child is up to date with their covid, flu and MMR immunisations during the winter period.


Lots of appointments are available through local pharmacies and booked appointments at vaccine centres.


If your child missed their flu vaccination in school, you can call the flu catch-up number to find out where to get a flu vaccine.


Why is the polio booster so important?
Polio can result in life-long paralysis and other disabilities, and in extreme cases, even death. There is no cure for polio, immunisation is the only protection.


We have not seen a live case of polio in the UK since 1984, and it is advised that we prevent any community spread.


More information and frequently asked questions about the polio vaccination programme for children is available from the NHS
