Children aged 1 to 9 years old in London are being offered a dose of polio vaccine. For some children this may be an extra dose on top of their routine vaccinations. In other children it may bring them up to date with their routine vaccinations.

If your child is registered with a GP, you will be contacted by the NHS to book an appointment locally. This may be at your GP surgery or at another local NHS vaccination centre. You can also make an appointment to attend some of the large-scale vaccination centres and pharmacies across south east London. Details of where they are and how to book are below.

You can also find more information about other sites available across London at NHS.UK
