Vaccinations for school age children

Vaccinations help protect against potentially life-threatening illnesses.

Routine vaccinations are offered free of charge on the NHS to all babies and children in the UK. They start when a baby is 8 weeks old and are completed by the time they are 18.

You will usually receive a letter telling you when vaccinations are due, but you can make sure you are up to date by checking NHS Choices or by calling your local GP surgery.

Here is a list of some of the vaccinations available:
