A guide to immunisations and vaccinations up to a year old

Throughout the first year of your baby’s life, they will be given a series of vaccinations to protect them against serious conditions.

At eight weeks:

  • 6-in-1 vaccine, which covers diphtheria, hepatitis B, haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), polio, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough)
  • Rotavirus vaccine
  • MenB

At 12 weeks:

  • 6-in-1 vaccine (second dose)
  • Pneumococcal (PCV) vaccine
  • Rotavirus vaccine (second dose)

At 16 weeks:

  • 6-in-1 vaccine (third dose)
  • MenB (second dose)

At one year old:

  • Hib/MenC (first dose)
  • MMR (first dose)
  • Pneumococcal (PCV) vaccine (second dose)
  • MenB (third dose)

It’s important that your child gets their vaccinations at the recommended age to give them the best protection. Your doctor’s surgery will get in touch with an appointment for you to bring your baby for their immunisations. But if you’ve missed one, it’s never too late and you can make an appointment with your GP surgery any time.
