This practice follows the national policy for childhood immunisation. Further information can be found on the NHS Immunisation Schedule website.
It is important that all children and babies are immunised.
Whilst preventing the spread of COVID-19 and caring for those infected is a public health priority, it is very important to maintain good coverage of immunisations, particularly in the childhood programme.
In addition to protecting the individual, this will avoid outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases that could increase further the numbers of patients requiring health services.
Naseby Medical Centre will take all necessary precautions to protect you and your baby from COVID-19.
People should still attend for routine vaccinations unless they are unwell
Babies and toddlers in particular need vaccinations to protect them from measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), rotavirus, diphtheria, whooping cough, meningitis, polio, tetanus, hepatitis B, TB and more.

Pertussis vaccination in pregnancy;
Pneumococcal vaccination for those in risk groups from 2 to 64 years of age and those aged 65 years and over (subject to supplies of PPV23 and clinical prioritisation).
