Children with special educational needs or disabilities

We understand children with special educational needs or disabilities may find vaccination sessions particularly stressful. Our immunisation nurses are very experienced at supporting children and young people who have additional needs and may be anxious about vaccinations.

We would like to offer all children the opportunity to receive their vaccinations in an appropriate and comfortable environment.

With this in mind we can offer the following options:

  • we can go to your child’s school and vaccinate – you may wish to be with them, but this is not a requirement.
  • we hold clinics in the school holidays at various locations throughout Kent that vary from children’s centres to hospitals. You can book at a location and time of your choice,
  • in exceptional circumstances, we may be able to offer home visits.
