Immunisation

Flu Banner blue rectangle 2018

Immunisation helps protect against serious diseases including influenza, measles, mumps, meningitis, polio and whooping cough. Once we have been immunised, our bodies are better able to fight these diseases if we come into contact with them.

Before vaccines were available, many children in the UK died from diseases such as whooping cough, measles and polio. Widespread immunisation programmes can contain and even eliminate diseases, making immunisation a major health success over the last 100 years.
