यह क्या है?

The RCH Immunisation Service drop-in centre was established in March 2001.

The drop-in centre provides opportunistic vaccines for patients and parents at the hospital, and, where available, non-patients (appointments are required for catch-up immunisation plans). Led by a specialist nursing team (and run by Nurse Practitioner and Manager Sonja Elia), it also provides specialist immunisation advice. The team supports outpatient clinics such as the Immunisation Clinic (Tuesday am), Immigrant Health clinic (Monday pm) and dedicated बीसीजी clinics (for infants aged less then 12 months). The drop-in centre provides seasonal vaccines, such as influenza; and delivers Palivizumab (RSV prophylaxis) for at risk infants. Additional vaccines such as varicella, meningococcal B and meningococcal ACWY are also available for purchase.

The staff at the drop-in centre employ a range of distraction techniques to reduce pain and anxiety and when these techniques are unsuccessful, an “immunisation under sedation” service can be offered. Please telephone the service for more information regarding this, bookings are essential.

Please note that the RCH has implemented additional precautions to ensure the safety of all patients, families and staff at this time. Access to medical care remains an essential service during the COVID-19 pandemic and staying up to date with scheduled immunisations is encouraged.
