Starting a new school. Things to do

  • Buy uniform
  • Get school shoes
  • Check pre-school jabs are up to date

Pre- school jabs are:

  • 2nd dose of MMR
  • 4 in 1 Pre school booster

Your child will be mixing with more children when they start their new school and could be at risk if catching preventable diseases if they haven't had all their childhood jabs.

If you are not sure if your child has had all their routine vaccinations, check their personal health record (Red Book) or contact the GP surgery. To get the best protection for your child, they need to have had two doses of MMR vaccine.
