Childhood Immunisations


Vaccination rates are falling leaving many children without immunity against deadly or life-changing diseases.1 Coverage has declined in nine of 12 vaccinations routinely given to children in England.1 The reasons for this decline are multi-factorial and include parental concerns about the health risks of vaccination.1

Healthcare professionals have a central role in maintaining public trust in vaccination. Good communication is vital in successfully
addressing parental concerns.
