Children Should Continue to be Vaccinated Throughout Coronavirus Outbreak

Commenting on today’s childhood immunisation statistics, Public Health Minister Joe FitzPatrick (pictured) reminded all parents and carers of the importance of continuing to get their children vaccinated during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

He said:

“I am pleased to see that childhood immunisation rates across Scotland remain very high, reflecting both the hard work and commitment of our colleagues in the NHS and a recognition among parents and carers of the benefits of vaccination. 

“I want to remind all parents and carers of the importance of getting their children vaccinated throughout the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

“Your GP or health board will still be available to do this and it is advised that you keep these appointments.”
