We are now giving an extra vaccination to babies to protect them against a vomiting and diarrhoea bug. Rotavirus infection is the most common cause of gastroenteritis in children under five and nearly every child currently gets the condition at some point. The new oral vaccine will be given to babies at 2 and 3 months old alongisde the baby's other childhood vaccinations.

 

Measles can be a very serious disease; your child is at risk if s/he hasn't had the MMR vaccination with 2 doses needed for best protection. Make an appointment with the practice nurses. 

 

Whooping Cough & Pregnancy: 

There is a lot of whooping cough around at the moment and babies who are too young to start their vaccinations are at greatest risk.  Expectant mothers can help protect their babies by getting vaccinated against whooping cough from week 28 of their pregnancy.  This will be offered during routine antenatal appointments here or with the midwife.  Pregnant ladies should also have the flu vaccine – both vaccines can be given at the same time as they don’t interfere with each other.  More info is available from http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/pregnancy-and-baby/pages/whooping-cough-vaccination-pregnant.aspx
