Has your child had their Immunisations?

Cases of Measles, Mumps and Rubella are on the rise.

To stop the spread of these infectious and potentially deadly diseases, immunise your child when you are invited to book them in. 

Important: Be aware of false information through anti-vaccine stories

Anti-vaccine stories are often spread online through social media.

They may not be based on scientific evidence and could put your child at risk of a serious illness.

If you would like some more information prior to booking your child in for an appointment, please contact the surgery. We can arrange for a Doctor to call you back and discuss any queries or questions you may have.

Things you need to know about vaccines

Vaccines:

Do

  • protect you and your child from many serious and potentially deadly diseases

  • protect other people in your community – by helping to stop diseases spreading to people who cannot have vaccines

  • undergo rigorous safety testing before being introduced – they’re also constantly monitored for side effects after being introduced

  • sometimes cause mild side effects that will not last long – some children may feel a bit unwell and have a sore arm for 2 or 3 days

  • reduce or even get rid of some diseases – if enough people are vaccinated

Don’t

  • do not cause autism – studies have found no evidence of a link between the MMR vaccine and autism

  • do not overload or weaken the immune system – it’s safe to give children several vaccines at a time and this reduces the amount of injections they need

  • do not cause allergies or any other conditions – all the current evidence tells us that vaccinating is safer than not vaccinating

  • do not contain mercury (thiomersal)

  • do not contain any ingredients that cause harm in such small amounts – but speak to your doctor if you have any known allergies such as eggs or gelatine
