Currently, millions of children are under-vaccinated or unvaccinated against preventable diseases like measles, mumps, meningitis, and pneumococcal disease, all of which can be handicapping or lethal. If a child you see has missed one or more doses of an important vaccination, it’s essential to help get them back on track with their scheduled vaccinations. Watch this free-to-view webinar for practical advice and tips to help re-prioritise childhood immunisations within your practice and prevent the re-emergence of vaccine-preventable diseases.
