Childhood Immunisations – Please Don’t Delay

Vaccines protect against serious infections,therefore should not be delayed because of the current Covid-19 situation. In line with national guidance parents should still bring their children for their routine childhood immunisations and boosters on time.

We are aware of some reports of parents facing difficulty obtaining paracetamol; Whilst parents should continue to try to obtain and administer infant paracetamol if possible, infant vaccines can and should still be given even if it is not possible to give paracetamol.

Parents will be advised on monitoring and treatment of fever when attending for the immunisation appointment.
