Children's Immunisations

girl_with_open_mouthPlease check the following points before bringing your child to the surgery:

  1. Is your child taking steroid treatment?
  2. Does the child's parent, brother or sister suffer from epilepsy? Epilepsy in more distant relatives is not considered a problem.
  3. Is your child suffering from any feverish illness? Don't worry about a runny nose without a fever.
  4. Does your child suffer from any disease affecting their immune system?
  5. Does your child suffer from a severe reaction to eggs?
  6. Has your child suffered from a reaction to any previous immunisation injection?
  7. Has your child got a high temperature now?

If the answer to any of the questions above is yes then tell your doctor.

Your child is at greater risk from contracting the disease than they are from suffering a reaction to the immunisation.

When Should Children be Immunised?

Children's immunisations are performed by the nurse. Simply make an appointment in the usual way, telling the receptionist it is for an immunisation injection.
