Guidance to keep you safe when attending your vaccination appointment
It is important that you, your baby or child, still have routine vaccinations. They protect against serious and potentially deadly illnesses and stop outbreaks in the community. We recommend that you attend your next scheduled appointment.

How to book your child’s vaccination appointment

You’ll usually be contacted by your GP surgery when your child is due for a routine vaccination. This could be a letter, text, phone call or email.

If you know your child is due for a vaccination, you can speak to your GP surgery to book the appointment. You do not need to wait to hear from them.

It could be at your GP surgery or a local child health clinic.

Your baby can still have their vaccinations if:

  • they have a minor illness without a temperature – such as a cold
  • they have allergies, asthma, eczema or food intolerances
  • they were born prematurely

When attending your appointment

Speak to your GP surgery if your child:

  • has missed any vaccinations
  • has a vaccination appointment booked – but you’ve missed it or cannot attend
  • has a vaccination appointment but is ill with a temperature
  • has a bleeding disorder (such as haemophilia) or has had a fit (seizure) in the past without a high temperature – let your GP surgery know this before your child has any vaccination

    Your GP surgery will be able to give you advice and rearrange your appointment.

    It’s best to have vaccines on time, but you can still catch up on most vaccines if you miss them.

If you choose not to attend your appointment please inform us, it is always helpful for us to know why so we can help you with any concerns you might have. If you still don’t wish to attend the appointment it can be offered to someone else.
You must not attend an appointment if you or any member of your household are suffering from any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19. Please contact the GP practice for the latest advice on what to do.
