Children's Vaccinations

During the vaccination appointment the doctor will provide you with all the information and details including possible side effects of the vaccination, in addition to giving you an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.

Please be aware that if your child has any allergies it is important to let us know at the time of booking so we can ensure the vaccination is suitable.

Other vaccinations and alternatives to those shown above may be available, please speak to our team for more information.

Varivax: This vaccination can be administered to persons 12 months of age or older. It may also be administered to infants from 9 months of age under special circumstances, such as to conform with national vaccination schedules or in outbreak situations.

It may also be given to persons who have no history of chickenpox, but who have been exposed to someone who has chickenpox.
Vaccination within three days of exposure may help prevent chickenpox or reduce the severity of disease, resulting in fewer skin lesions and shorter duration of illness. In addition, there is limited information that being vaccinated up to five days after exposure may reduce disease severity.

The vaccination is given in two doses:

Children from 12 months to 12 years of age: two doses should be given at least one month apart.

two doses: the second dose should be given 4 to 8 weeks after the first dose.
