Immunisation helps to protect you from disease
It’s really important children continue to receive the booster vaccines and MMR vaccine they are due at one year during the pandemic. These will protect them against several different serious infectious diseases.
Make an appointment with your GP practice who can give them safely.
Vaccination appointments count as an important medical reason to leave your home.
