Important information on childhood vaccinations for children new to Victoria School:
Your child will be learning and socialising with more children when they start their new school and could be at risk of catching preventable diseases if they haven’t had all their childhood jabs. If you are not sure if your child has had all their routine vaccinations, check their personal health record (Red Book) or contact the GP surgery. To get the best protection for your child, they need to have had two doses of MMR vaccine. For a checklist of the vaccines and the ages at which they should ideally be given visit www.nhs.uk/vaccinations.
