Polio Booster Campaign for Children




The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) announced today that all children aged one to nine and living in Greater London will be offered a polio vaccine.

Please avoid ringing our reception team for further information as, presently, there is no further information available.

There was no advance notice of this announcement and at present there are no details of how this booster will be given other than an intention that the vaccines be given over the course over the next six weeks and prioritising boroughs in which Polio has been detected within sewage.

Further communication should be coming out over the next few days both to Practices and also to the Parents/Guardians of eligible patients.
