Immunisation and Vaccination Schedule

The NHS vaccination schedule

Please note that we encourage all children to have received the 2nd dose of MMR by the time they are two years old, this is different to the national schedule of 3 years and 4 months old. This is safe to do and importantly it helps to keep your children and others in our community safe from any potential measle outbreaks in Southwark and South East London. If you have any questions about childhood immunisations please contact the practice and we can arrange for a clinician to call you back.

Checklist of the vaccines that are routinely offered to everyone in the UK on the NHS, including the ages at which they should ideally be given is available on the NHS website.

If you’re not sure whether you or your child have had all your routine vaccinations, ask your GP or practice nurse to find out for you. It may be possible to ‘catch up’ later in life.

Try to make sure you or your child have vaccinations delivered on time to ensure protection against serious communicable diseases.

If you’re going to be away from the GP surgery when a vaccination is due, talk to your doctor. It may be possible to arrange for vaccination at a different location.
