Updated Information on the Primary Immunisation Programme 2016!

Leave a comment

Hi Mums and Dads of WonderBabas in Ireland!

There have been some recent announcements about the immunisations which your child will be offered.  It has been announced that the HSE intend to roll out a new Primary Childhood Immunisation Programme this year which will mean that all babies who are born on or after the 1st of October 2016 will receive two new vaccines as part of the programme.  The two new vaccines include MenB (at 2,4 and 12 months) and Rotavirus (at 2 and 4 months). The timing  if the 1st MenC vaccine will also change from 4 to 6 months and the timing of the third PCV will change from 12 to 13 months.  Currently Hib and MenC are given as two separate vaccines but will now change to one injection which combines the two vaccinations at 13 months.

I have updated my ‘Vaccination Schedule’ blog so that you have all of the information you need to answer any questions you may have relating to the changes and how they may or may not affect you and your baby.

The updated blog is available here:

My name is Sheena Mitchell and I'm a pharmacist with my own business Milltown totalhealth Pharmacy in Dublin 6. From working in the pharmacy I've realised that there are a lot of first time and experienced moms who might benefit from hints and tips from a pharmacist who can balance healthcare advice with real hands on experience from my important work as a mother of two! I hope to bring you regular advice and information and answer questions that you have! Being a mother and pharmacist are my two favorite things and I'm delighted to have this way of bringing my two worlds together! All questions and queries are gratefully received but otherwise sit back, relax, and let the solutions come to you!
