Your pre-school vaccinations

One of the best ways to protect your child against diseases like measles, rubella, tetanus and meningitis is through has a full list of the all the vaccinations your child is entitled to and the diseases they will be protected against.

Your child will be offered the second dose of the MMR vaccination and their four-in-one pre-school booster around three years and four months.

Nasal flu vaccination

All two and three-year-olds are offered a free flu vaccination either at your GP surgery or you can now book at a local immunisation community clinic. This is given as a painless, nasal spray.

Children can catch and spread flu easily and it can be a very unpleasant illness for them possibly leading to serious problems including bronchitis and pneumonia.

Vaccinating them also protects others who are vulnerable to flu, such as babies and older people.
