Find out where you can get your child’s routine vaccinations in Lambeth

Protect your child against childhood diseases

The best way to help protect your child against severe illness from polio, measles, mumps, rubella and other childhood diseases is to get them up to date with their routine vaccinations.

Get your children up to date with essential childhood vaccinations

Vaccinations to protect against a range of diseases such as polio, measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) are free of charge and provide vital protection against serious illness and disease. While most children in Lambeth are vaccinated, a few children need to catch up with their routine immunisations.

If your child is not up to date with their vaccinations, we encourage you to attend a vaccination clinic as soon as possible. There are lots of ways you can do this.

For children aged five or under (not yet at school), please check their Red Book or contact a GP surgery to ensure they are up to date, and get the necessary vaccinations if not.

All parents and carers can contact their GP surgery at any time to get their children up to date with their vaccinations. If your child is not registered with a GP they are still entitled to free routine vaccinations.
