Children’s immunisation catch-up clinics

Posted on November 22nd, 2022


Has your son or daughter missed any of their routine immunisations at their GP?

Over the coming month, Mersey Care’s School Immunisation Team will be hosting a series of weekly ‘catch-up clinics’ offering children in Liverpool any childhood immunisations that they may be overdue.

These catch-up clinics will be held at County Children’s Centre, Arnot Street, Walton, L4 4ED on three consecutive Thursdays – including 24 November, 1 December and 8 December, from 1- 4pm.

Most routine childhood immunisations will be available at these catch-up clinics – including pre-school boosters, MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), and meningitis.

The annual nasal flu vaccination will also be available for primary aged children who may have missed their session in school.

The clinics will be offered on a drop-in basis – no appointment needed. Children will be seen on a first come, first served basis.

Please note that the clinic is only for vaccinations that are overdue. If your child is due to have a vaccination soon but hasn’t been invited yet, please wait for an appointment invitation as normal.

If you are unsure whether your child is up to date on all of their childhood vaccinations, you can check in their NHS Red Book, or by contacting The School Immunisation Team on 0151 295 3833 or your GP practice.

You can find more information about the each of the vaccinations provides under the NHS Childhood Immunisations Programme, and when each one is due, on the NHS website.

If you would like your child to receive a catch-up vaccination, but cannot attend one of these drop-in clinics, you can also arrange an alternative appointment this by contacting Mersey Care’s School Immunisation Team on 0151 295 3833 or emailing vacandimms.team@nhs.net, or by arranging this at your GP practice.

You can also speak to The School Immunisation Team if you have any questions or concerns about your child having a vaccination.
