Baby Vaccinations

The practice provides the full range of baby vaccinations, which are free under the Childhood Immunisation Scheme. We strongly believe that baby vaccinations are essential to protect children from serious childhood infection. For that reason, we encourage all our families to have their children vaccinated, and we do not provide single vaccinations for MMR, etc. If you have any concerns around vaccinating your baby, we would be happy to discuss these with you.

Comprehensive information about all vaccines provided by the HSE can be found at
