The development of effective vaccines has led to a huge decrease in childhood deaths, and immunisation is a way of protecting against serious diseases. Once we have been immunised, our bodies are better able to fight these diseases if we come into contact with them. Click here for more information about vaccinations on the Immunisation Scotland website.
From 1st May 2022, ALL vaccines will be delivered by health and social care partnerships (HSCP's) instead of GP practices. Immunisations provide vital protection to
you and your family against illnesses which can be serious or even fatal. For more information and general enquiries on what vaccines you are eligible for, and how to access these, please visit NHS Lothian’s website: www.nhslothian.scot/HealthInformation/Immunisation/Pages/default.aspx
