Children are immunised against several routine diseases, immunisations start at the age of 8 weeks old and continue until they are 5 years of age and are offered free of charge by the NHS.
Here at Pangbourne Medical Practice we offer to immunise your child in one of our Childhood Immunisations Clinic which run on a Tuesday afternoon. Due to the high number of patients that need to be immunised, we run this clinic differently to how most other appointments are run. Susie is our Childhood Immunisation officer and she organises all patient appointments according to when the immunisations are due, a letter will then be sent to you to inform you of your child’s appointment.
Please see below for the normal Childhood Immunisations schedule.
If you would like any further information regarding your child’s immunisations please contact Susie or Margaret at the surgery on 0118 984 2234 or visit this website.
