For more information about vaccines, Vaccine Knowledge is a source of independent, evidence-based information about vaccines and infectious diseases. They provide clear information on complex topics and back it up with references to high-quality, reliable research.

The Vaccine Knowledge Project is managed by the Oxford Vaccine Group, an academic research group in the Department of Paediatrics at the University of Oxford. The site is updated regularly to make sure information is as up-to-date and accurate as possible and is overseen by academic staff at the cutting edge of vaccine research.

The Health Centre works with the Child Health Immunisations team to support the vaccination of all children against preventable diseases. We follow the UK Immunisation Schedule.

When a child registers at the practice, their parent/carer must show us their immunisation history. This includes details of any vaccinations the child has had in other parts of the UK or overseas. Our Nurses will then check the child is up to date and invite the child for catch up immunisations if needed.

If you are not accompanying your child for their vaccinations you will need to send a letter of consent confirming that you are happy for your child to be vaccinated in the care of the person attending with them. Please provide the name and address of the person you have sent your child with. A form of identification will also be required from the person attending with your child, i.e. driving licence, passport, etc. If this documentation is not available we will not be able to provide the immunisations at that time.
