Baby Vaccinations

Vaccines Available for this Group:

The 6-in-1 Vaccine

Also commonly known as the DTaP/IPV/Hib/HepB vaccine, helps protect your child against:

  • Diphtheria
  • Tetanus
  • Pertussis (whooping cough)
  • Polio
  • Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)
  • Hepatitis B

Meningitis B (MenB) Vaccine

Helps protect against meningitis and septicaemia (blood poisoning) caused by a group of meningococcal bacteria B.

Rotavirus Vaccine

Rotavirus is an infection that causes severe diarrhoea and vomiting in babies and young children. It can lead to dehydration (loss of body fluids) requiring hospital treatment. The rotavirus immunisation protects your baby against this illness.

The Pneumococcal Vaccine

Provides some protection against meningitis caused by pneumococcal infection, and against other conditions such as severe ear infections and pneumonia caused by pneumococcal bacteria. This vaccine doesn’t, however, protect against meningitis caused by other bacteria or viruses.

The Hib/MenC Vaccine

Helps protect your baby against 2 of the causes of meningitis and septicaemia (blood poisoning). This vaccine will help protect your child through early childhood.
