New Schedule, More Protection
Two new vaccines are being added to the childhood immunisation schedule. These new vaccines will give babies protection against Meningococcal B disease and rotavirus disease. The HSE has been given funding to allow us to introduce these vaccines for all babies born on or after 1 October 2016.
