Information for parents

General immunisation information for parents/carers

There is a lot of information about immunisation on the Internet and it is difficult to know where to find information that can be trusted.

Many of us are parents ourselves and have faced the same decisions about immunisation of our own children.

Here at the BCVC we are committed to providing safe and effective vaccines for children. We believe that immunisation is a safe and important way to protect our children from disease.
