Routine vaccination schedule

Vaccinations are the best way to protect your baby against many childhood illnesses, for example measles, meningitis and rubella.

There are several routine vaccinations that will be offered to your child from the age of eight weeks. Vaccinations are quick, safe and extremely effective. Once your child has been vaccinated against a disease, their body can fight it off better. If a child isn’t vaccinated, they’re at higher risk of catching – and becoming very ill from – the illness.
