Immunisations Team - Knowsley


​Who we are
We provide the routine national immunisation programme for school-aged children in Knowsley. You can find out which immunisations your child needs, by visiting NHS Choices.

Who is our service for?
Most immunisations happen between two months and five years. Some need to be given more than once to make sure your child is fully protected – the later injections are called boosters.

Immunisations (also called vaccinations) stop your child from catching serious diseases. Most are given by injection (jabs), and protect your child for life.

The World Health Organisation says the two things to have had the biggest positive effect on world health are clean water and immunisations. Making sure your child gets all his or her immunisations is one of the best things you can do for their health.

Who do we work in partnership with?
The team works closely with midwives, school nurses, children's centres, GPs, social care and voluntary services.

How to access our service
Your baby will get invitations in the post to attend your GP practice, as they are responsible for immunisations until your child starts school. Once your child starts school, you will be sent information and a form to sign before they have any immunisations.
