Hi Mums and Dads of WonderBabas in Ireland!
There have been some recent announcements about the immunisations which your child will be offered. It has been announced that the HSE intend to roll out a new Primary Childhood Immunisation Programme this year which will mean that all babies who are born on or after the 1st of October 2016 will receive two new vaccines as part of the programme. The two new vaccines include MenB (at 2,4 and 12 months) and Rotavirus (at 2 and 4 months). The timing if the 1st MenC vaccine will also change from 4 to 6 months and the timing of the third PCV will change from 12 to 13 months. Currently Hib and MenC are given as two separate vaccines but will now change to one injection which combines the two vaccinations at 13 months.
I have updated my ‘Vaccination Schedule’ blog so that you have all of the information you need to answer any questions you may have relating to the changes and how they may or may not affect you and your baby.
The updated blog is available here:
