School immunisations team: routine vaccine catch-up clinics

Date: 09/02/2024 | Category: News 2024

Being up to date with routine vaccinations helps prevent you and your family from becoming unwell.

School age children are offered all routine vaccines at school catch-up sessions, via their GP, and at participating community pharmacies.

Our schools immunisations team offers local catch-up clinics across the county for children and young people who have missed their early years or school vaccination sessions for some reason. These sessions are also available for young people educated at home, or young people with an individual need such as needlephoebia, anxiety and ASD.

These sessions are now being listed and promoted via the BOB ICB (Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire Integrated Care Board).


With measles a current concern it’s really important to check and make sure that your children have received their  MMR vaccine which helps prevent Measles, Mumps and Rubella. They should have received two doses of this vaccine, one at a year old and another at 3 years, 4 months. Both doses are needed to be fully protected.

If you’re not sure about you or your child’s vaccine status your GP surgery may be able to help.
