Children’s Health

Child Immunisations in Dublin City Centre

Remember your child needs FIVE visits to your GP to complete their course of vaccines and to be protected against serious diseases.

What vaccines will my child get at birth?

When your child is born, a Health Service Executive (HSE ) doctor will give your child the BCG vaccine at the maternity hospital or later at an HSE clinic. This vaccine protects against tuberculosis (TB).

What can I expect after vaccination?

A few weeks after the BCG vaccine, a small red pimple usually appears at the site of the injection. The pimple will remain for a number of weeks and there may be a slight discharge. A scab may form over the injection site. This is normal. The scab will heal and leave a small scar.

Your child may have a sore arm, flu symptoms or fever after the vaccination. If they have a very high fever you can give them plenty of fluids and paracetamol or Ibuprofen.

Children’s Vaccines
Age to Vaccinate Type of Vaccination

Please note that unless there is a valid reason, we advise that all children should have the complete course of recommended immunisations.

If your child is not immunised, then as well as a risk to themselves, they may pose a risk to other children as they may be a carrier for these diseases.
