Immunisations and vaccinations: why are they important?
Immunisation is a way of protecting ourselves against serious diseases. Once you have been immunised your body should be able to fight those diseases against which you have been vaccinated. The vaccination frequently asked questions page gives further general information.
Many vaccines are given during childhood. For a full list of childhood vaccinations and advice on where to get information on the diseases they protect against, see the childhood vaccination page.
A list of recommended vaccines is available on the NHS choices website (external link).
For the best protection, it is important that vaccines are given on time. If you or your child have missed a routine vaccine, contact your GP - you may be able to book an appointment to catch up.
