Child Health

It’s important to look after your child, especially during their early years. Vaccinations are one of the easiest and most effective ways to protect them from illness and disease. That’s why free routine vaccinations for children aged six weeks to five years is available nationwide.


The immunisation visits ensure that your baby receives the best childhood protection possible against life-threatening diseases such as diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough (pertussis), hepatitis B and haemophilus influenza type b disease.


The Well Child Programme provides support for parents when making decisions about their child’s vaccinations. We hope you find this information useful as you make decisions about your child’s health.


We offer all the important vaccines and send reminders when these are due.
