Polio booster vaccine

For some children, this may be an extra dose on top of their routine vaccinations. In other children, it may bring them up to date with their routine vaccinations.

There are signs the virus may be spreading in London, and the number of children vaccinated in London is lower than it should be. Boosting immunity in children should help protect them and reduce the risk of the virus continuing to spread.

How can I get my child vaccinated?

If your child is 1 to 4, your GP will call you to arrange a vaccination. You can have any older siblings vaccinated at the same time.

If your child is 5 to 9, you can find out where to get a polio vaccination at Polio vaccination - NHS South East London (selondonics.org).
