Immunization

Immunization is a routine part of our children’s health visits. Though it can be distressing for both parents and their children, vaccines protect your child from serious and life threatening diseases.


Immunization

Below is a copy of our immunization card with the vaccines given at specific ages. We follow guidelines from the Ministry of Health and have some additional vaccines not available in the public service.

 

We use a distraction technique called imaginative medicine to allay anxiety before shots are given in the older children.  For the babies, a cuddle after shots is all that is needed!

  • Follow guidelines for giving panadol on our fever guidelines article
  • If a lump develops, leave alone as it goes away on its own.
  • Extreme swelling and redness, or very high fever, should be reported right away!

Yellow Fever vaccines and sometimes MMR(Measles/Mumps/Rubella) are usually given in batches as the mixed vial only lasts 1 day.  Please try to keep the appointments for these vaccine as unused vaccines have to be discarded
