Immunisations - A Guide to vaccination (from two to five years)

This guide is for parents or guardians of children aged two to five years old. It provides information on the routine immunisations that are given to children before they start school to protect them from serious childhood diseases.

It describes these diseases and explains why young children need protection against them. It also answers some of the most common questions about early years immunisations.

If you have more questions or you want more information, talk to your doctor, practice nurse or health visitor.
