Vaccinations, also called immunisations, have saved countless lives, and are one of the most effective measures to help you stay well. Vaccinations are usually given in your GP surgery or within schools and if a vaccine has been missed it can be given by a GP practice or in community clinics.
If you are concerned your child may have missed vaccinations, please contact your GP surgery.
In addition, the NHS Choices website now has an NHS-accredited vaccination guide .
You'll find facts about routine NHS vaccinations, vaccines for people in special risk groups, and for those travelling abroad. So whether you're the parent of a young child, a teenager leaving home for university, or a carer looking after an elderly relative, you'll find accurate advice on the vaccinations that you need to stay healthy.
