Vaccines for you and your family

Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting people against harmful diseases before they come into contact with them in the community. Immunisation not only protects individuals, but also others in the community, by reducing the spread of disease.

There has been no recommendation from the HSE to stop the childhood vaccinations, vaccines in pregnancy or vaccines for people in at risk groups during Covid-19. 

The HSE recommends that people attend for medical appointments during this time and this would include attending for vaccinations.
