This Parent Tip provides some basic information on the childhood immunisation programme, explaining how vaccines work, how they are regulated and why it is important to ensure your baby
receives all the recommended immunisations. We have an additional Parent Tip on getting your baby immunised and what to expect, including information on things such as soothing your baby
during and after vaccinations, and what to do if they are poorly on the day of their appointment.
Just to reassure you that despite the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is still recommended that your child receives their vaccines as this protects them against other serious diseases that can still cause them harm.
