Protect your child from childhood infections

Campaign Image

Childhood infections, like measles and whooping cough, are rising with outbreaks across the country.

Such infections can have a huge impact on a child’s life. They can miss out on school due to time spent unwell, be hospitalised, and even experience life-long complications and disability. 

If your child isn’t vaccinated, they’re not protected. 

It is important to take up the NHS’ free childhood immunisation programme as soon as it is offered to ensure your child has the best protection.

If you are not sure whether your child has had all their vaccines for their age:

  • Check your child’s RED BOOK
  • Ask your health visitor
  • Contact your GP practice

If you think your child has missed any of their vaccinations contact your GP practice.

Visit the NHS website for the full immunisation timetable and information on how to book. You can also find more information on the West Sussex County Council website.
