Children receive a significant number of vaccines, in various combinations and at specific times in their first few years of life. Therefore it’s important to have a general understanding of what vaccines a child should have received by a particular age when taking a paediatric history. This article provides a summary of the vaccination schedule which is ideal for quick revision!

See the NHS vaccination schedule for more details.
