We recommend full immunisation for all pre-school children; immunisation clinics are held on Monday afternoons at Weston and Tuesday morning at Harefield, however other appointments can be made with the nurse in her daily surgery. Please check the following points before bringing your child to the surgery.
There has been some adverse publicity in the press about immunisation in children, however, remember your child is at greater risk from contracting the disease than he or she is from suffering a reaction to immunisation.
If the answer to any of the following questions below is yes, then tell your doctor or nurse.
- Is your child suffering from any feverish illness? Don’t worry about a runny nose.
- Do either of the child’s parents or brothers and sisters suffer from epilepsy? Epilepsy in more distant relatives is not considered a problem.
- Is your child taking steroid treatment?
- Does your child suffer from any disease affecting his/her immune system?
- Does your child suffer from a severe reaction to eggs?
- Has your child suffered from a reaction to any previous immunisation injection?
