Who we are
We are teams of immunisation professionals based across Kent and Medway. Each local team has an immunisation lead nurse, immunisation staff nurses, immunisation assistants and admin support staff.
What we do
We deliver the routine national immunisation programme to school aged children. This includes children who may be home schooled, and others not in school.
We offer the following vaccinations which protect children and young people against:
- Flu for children in Year R,1,2,3, 4 and 5, this is seasonal and will begin in late September.
- The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccination which protects against Cervical Cancer and Genital Warts. This is currently offered to girls only. We give this in Year 8, and will offer a catch up to those in Year 9 if missed in year 8.
- Meningococcal disease strains A, C, W, Y (MenACWY) Currently being offered to young people in years 9 and 10
- Diphtheria Tetanus and Polio (Td/IPV) Offered at the same time as MenACWY in years 9 and 10.
We also provide catch up clinics for any child or young person up to 19 years who are not up to date with their routine childhood immunisations.
If your child has missed their immunisation in school, is home educated or needs to catch up with their immunisations for any reason, you can bring them to one of our community clinics.
To book please contact the immunisation hub on 0300 123 5205.
If you are not sure which immunisations your child should please see the vaccination age checklist.
If you are not sure which immunisations they have already had you should contact your GP who will be able to check your child’s records.
How do you use this service?
