Polio vaccination for children in Lewisham

Children aged 1 to 9 years old in Lewisham 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.

There are signs the virus may be spreading in London and the number of children vaccinated is lower than it should be. Boosting immunity in children should help protect them and reduce the risk of the virus continuing to spread.

Walk in polio vaccination clinics for children aged 1–9 years are now available at a range of locations across Lewisham at bookable and walk-in clinics.
