Useful Tips
Meningitis C and Hib vaccines:

Since September 2006 all children have been offered an additional booster dose of Hib and meningitis C (Hib/Men C) vaccine, given as a combination vaccine, shortly after their first birthday. This booster is needed to ensure longer term protection from these two infections through the early childhood years, and to make sure that disease levels remain low in the general population.

Pneumococcal vaccines:

The pneumococcal vaccine was added to the childhood vaccination schedule in 2006 so that all children from the age of 2 months would be immunised. Children born before 2006 would not have received this vaccine when they went for their routine immunisations. It is important to ensure that these children are also protected against pneumococcal meningitis, bacteraemia, ear infections and pneumonia. Since September 2006 all children under 2 years of age have been offered the vaccine catch up. Please contact your healthcare provider for further information.
