The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated during the Coronavirus pandemic, it is still important for babies to receive their vaccines at 2, 4, 6, 12 and 13 months. The HSE recommend that patients attend medical appointments; this includes vaccinations. 

The vaccines should be given on time or as soon as possible after to protect babies from serious infectious diseases.

Please contact your GP to make an appointment.

Remember - It takes 5 visits to your GP practice at 2, 4, 6, 12 and 13 months of age for your baby to complete their primary childhood immunisation schedule.
