Children and young people - immunisation

Information about vaccines, disease and immunisation can be found on the NHS Choices website, which contains details of the recommended vaccinations for you and your family.

You can create an interactive planner for your child's routine childhood vaccinations. The timetable has been worked out to help minimise the risk of catching such diseases as measles, meningitis, mumps, polio, rubella, tetanus, whooping cough and diphtheria.

Routine childhood vaccinations start when your baby is two months old and are normally completed by the time they are 18, although teenage years are a key time for some important vaccinations.
