Childhood Immunisations

We provide all the standard primary childhood vaccinations, most of which are free of charge. You can read more about these at

Chicken Pox Immunisation

We can immunise your child against chicken pox using the varicella vaccine. This vaccine is ordered on request in advance of your visit, so please book in advance and mention to our reception that you want to make a chicken pox immunisation appointment.

Immunising your child is the most effective way of protecting them against serious diseases such as hepatitis, diphtheria and polio. The Primary Childhood vaccinations are free at Carlton Clinic. These involve three injections, given when your child is 2, 4 and 6 months of age. Babies are more vulnerable so it’s important to give your child the earliest and best protection.

MMR Immunisation

Babies over 1 year of age should get an immunisation at the doctor’s to protect against Measles, Mumps and Rubella.  A follow-up dose is often given in schools at the age of 4-5, but can also be given by your doctor. Two doses give your child better protection.
