Immunisation is one of the best ways to protect your whānau against a range of infectious diseases and remains a priority for parents during all COVID-19 alert levels.
Your child’s routine immunisations are due at 6 weeks, 3 months, 5 months, 12 months, 15 months and 4 years, and are more important than ever. For their best protection, immunise on time. Delaying immunisation puts your child at greater risk of serious diseases, particularly whooping cough and measles.
Your children can be immunised safely during all COVID-19 alert levels. All healthcare services have procedures in place to make vaccinating safe. Your doctor or nurse can explain how it works at their practice.
