Baby Clinic - About Child Immunisations

About child immunisation
 
If you have a new born baby or a child who is five years
or younger, you must immunise the child. 
 
Immunisation helps to strengthen your child’s immune
system to fight diseases like polio, measles, hepatitis B,
diphtheria, tuberculosis (TB) and meningitis.
It is a must that your new born baby or child up to the
age of five years be immunised. 
 
Note: You are expected to immunise your child
and the child’s record of immunisation can be requested
when you apply for school or social grants.  
 
What you should do
 
• Visit your local clinic or a medical practitioner.
• Fill in a form which is provided at the clinic.
• If you are a previous visitor, you should bring your
card with you.
• Inform the nurse of your child’s age and your child’s
immunisation history
• The nurse will take your child’s weight, length and the
head circumference to determine if your child is growing
at the expected rate.
• Your child will be immunised according to his/her age.
• You will be advised on how to handle the child’s reaction
to the vaccine.
• The next immunisation date will be given to you.
 
Note: Children sometimes develop a fever from
the vaccine, it is important to inform the nurse
if your child is allergic to eggs.  
 
How long does it take
 
Immunisation is done immediately at the clinic.

charge at state owned clinics and hospitals.
