The Vaccination and Immunisation service exists to ensure the safe and effective delivery of all vaccine programmes within Sefton, and to maintain standards of clinical excellence.
IMPORTANT: Changes to recommendations for administration of Multiple Live Vaccines
Public Health England has released new evidence based guidelines on the administration of live vaccines. In the majority of cases, the old 4 week rule of thumb is no longer applicable except for MMR & Varicella/Zoster, which must be administered either on the same day or 4 weeks apart.
Yellow Fever and MMR must not be administered on the same day but 4 weeks apart (except for emergency cover, give the 2nd MMR after the 4 week period).
More information is available from the Public Health England website.
Vaccination sessions are held at clinics, children’s centres and GP surgeries throughout Sefton.
