Children and young people's immunisation programme


The children's immunisation programme provides a range of vaccinations children at set stages of their life to protect them against infections.

Vaccination begins when babies are two months old and end when they are teenagers. It is important your child completes the immunisation programme.

The programme provides protection against infections such as:

  • diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, Hib and hepatitis B
  • measles, mumps and rubella
  • pneumococcal
  • respiratory illnesses such as flu or Covid-19
  • HPV

You can find out more about the vaccinations at NHS vaccinations.

For more information on children and young people's health please see our Best start in life pages.
