School Vaccinations

Children need to get booster doses of some vaccines in school to protect them against these diseases.

• When your child is aged 4 to 5 years, they will get two vaccines:

  1. the 4 in 1 booster to protect against diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), polio and tetanus
  2. a second dose of the MMR vaccine to protect against measles,mumps and rubella. These vaccines are usually given by a HSE doctor or nurse in school.

• When your child is aged 11 to 14 years, they will get a tetanus and low-dose diphtheria booster vaccine. This vaccine is usually given by a HSE doctor or nurse in school.

• When your daughter is in first year of second level school, (about 12 years of age) she will get the HPV (Human Papillomavirus) vaccine, to protect against cervical cancer. Three doses of this vaccine will be given over 6-12 months. This vaccine is given by a HSE doctor or nurse in school.

In Ireland, all the recommended childhood immunisations listed in the school immunisation schedule are free.
