The HSE have introduced this vaccine for all new born babies born since 31st October 2016. There is no catch up programme. We are happy to provide this vaccine to all children who have not been vaccinated. If you are interested in having your children vaccinated please contact the surgery. As there is no catch-up program paid for by the HSE there is a charge for all patients. You will need to book this vaccine in advance as it is not always available from suppliers. The minimum age for the vaccination is 2 months.
The cost of the vaccine is €300 for the first 2 shots and €150 for the 3rd shot (only needed if the first dose is given before the age of 2 years). 2-3 shots will be required depending on the age of your child.
