Children’s Vaccinations

Routine immunisation against tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough, polio, measles, rubella, mumps and haemophilus, rotavirus and influenza, is routinely offered to all children, and full immunisation is actively encouraged by the practice for all these conditions.

The timing of immunisation injections is discussed at the baby (development assessment) clinic, and you may obtain advice either from the doctor or health visitor.

Appointment letters are sent out for babies first vaccinations, all other appointments are the responsibility of the parent or carer.

Boosters of tetanus and polio are available for teenagers if the service is not available through the school.

BCG is not performed in the surgery, but arrangements can be made for those who miss vaccination at school, to attend Bromley Hospital Chest Clinic.
