World Immunisation Week

Date: 20/04/2022 | Category: CCG News

As it is World Immunisation Week (24-30 April), NHS England is reminding people how important it is to keep up to date with routine vaccinations at all life stages.

The annual event, which is championed by the World Health Organisation (WHO), promotes the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against preventable diseases – many of which are available through the NHS in England. It is important to know that vaccinations are rigorously tested to the highest safety standards.

Ranging from pre-school vaccinations like MMR, to flu and shingles which are available to older age groups, all stages of the NHS vaccination schedule are vital for protecting the wider population’s health. This in turn, decreases pressure on the NHS and reduces hospital admissions.

If people didn’t manage to book their own or their child’s vaccine appointments when invited during the pandemic, they are urged to make an appointment with the GP practice they are registered at as soon as possible.
