Protecting baby starts in pregnancy

Immunisation Weeks starts on 2 May and the focus this year is about protecting unborn children.

Immunising during pregnancy is free, and helps protect your baby from the serious effects of whooping cough and influenza. Enrolling your baby with a general practice as soon as they are born helps them get the care they need.

The National Immunisation programme provides free immunisation to people at different stages of their life.
