Yes. Immunisation is the safest and most effective way of protecting your baby against many serious diseases. Most new parents believe that getting immunisations on time is important to ensure that their baby is properly protected.
As immunisations are essential to your baby's health, they are going ahead as planned during this time, although they may look a little different than before. NHS immunisation services will be taking additional precautions to protect you and your baby. Speak to your midwife or health visitor for further information in your area, or visit NHS Direct to see answers to some commonly asked questions.
