Vaccination strategy for ongoing polio incident
Information on Polio and How to book an appointment
Following the discovery of a type of vaccine-derived poliovirus in sewage in North and East London, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has advised that a targeted inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) booster dose should be offered to all children between the ages of 1 and 9 in all London boroughs.
Parents of children who are overdue their immunisations, and children eligible for booster or catch-up doses, are contacted to come in for an appointment by the practice.
The Camden Imms Team are now set up and ready to be able to vaccinate children as well. The families with 5-9 year olds can now arrange to visit Peckwater, which will be helpful as the sessions are after school.
The booking for an appointment line is 0203 317 5076/ 5074
