Immunisations: reducing differences in uptake in under 19s [PH21]

Measuring the use of this guidance

Recommendation: 4

The Healthy Child team, led by a health visitor working with other practitioners, should check the immunisation record (including the personal child health record) of each child aged up to 5 years. They should carry out this check when the child joins a day nursery, nursery school, playgroup, Sure Start children's centre or when they start primary school. The check should be carried out in conjunction with childcare or education staff and the parents.
