Polio booster vaccination

All children in London aged one to nine are to be offered a polio booster vaccination in coming weeks, following an announcement by the NHS and UKHSA.

The NHS will soon be in touch if your child is within this age group, to tell you how and when they will be able to get their vaccination.  Please do not contact health services about polio boosters at this stage, as staff are very busy setting up this vaccination programme. You can find general information on polio vaccination here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/polio/

Meanwhile, if your child has fallen behind with their routine programme of vaccinations (not including this polio booster), please urgently get in contact with your GP so that they can get protected as soon as possible.
