Childhood Vaccinations Birmingham

At the Oakley Medical Practice, we provide an extensive programme for childhood vaccinations in Birmingham. This protects children from highly infectious viruses and diseases, such as measles, tetanus and meningitis.

Our childhood vaccinations in Birmingham will not only protect your family, but those around you too. For example, young children who have not yet been vaccinated. This is also especially important when travelling abroad to high-risk countries.

To learn more about what vaccinations your child should have and when, please book an appointment with one of our nurses. Upon your consultation, we will ask about any allergies or recent vaccinations before providing you with a schedule.

Private Childhood Vaccinations Birmingham

We believe every child should be protected against preventable diseases and infections, such as rotavirus, hepatitis B and polio. Our private childhood vaccinations in Birmingham will not only support throughout their earlier years, but into teenage and adulthood too.

While many of these conditions are rare in the UK, it is still important to have your child vaccinated when recommended. If the amount of vaccinations given decrease, these health concerns can resurge. In fact, 9 out of 10 people can become seriously ill if exposed to measles.

Our programme protects children of all ages, including infants, young children and adolescents. If you have any concerns or questions about our private childhood vaccinations in Birmingham, please do not hesitate to contact us.

What Diseases do Childhood Vaccinations Protect Against?

Childhood vaccinations protect your child from Diphtheria, Tetanus, Whooping Cough, Polio, Haemophilus Influenzae (Type B), Hepatitis B, Rotavirus, Meningococcal (Groups A, B, C, W & Y) Disease, Pneumococcal Disease, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, HPV, Meningitis.

These vaccines are essential to stimulate the production of antibodies that help your child fight off infections. 

Are Childhood Vaccinations Safe?

Absolutely. Millions of children receive essential vaccines each year without experiencing adverse effects. Although mild pain and swelling at the injection site are common, it’s highly unlikely that any serious side effects will occur. 

What Should Parents Expect During a Childhood Vaccination Appointment?

A Practice Nurse will explain the process of your child’s vaccination, detail potential side effects and how to address them, allow you to voice your concerns and answer any questions you may have. You can choose to not go through with the vaccination at any time.

You’ll need to bring your child’s red book (and continue to do so until they’re 4), so the nurse can reference it where necessary and record the vaccination. 

The vaccine will be administered in their upper arm if they’re over a year old and in their thigh if they’re under 12 months old. So we recommend dressing your child in short sleeves or loose-fitting clothing so as not to alert them. 

Your nurse will conduct several checks before administering the vaccine and record it in your baby’s red book and on their medical record. Then, you’re all good to go!
