Polio is spreading in London. Make sure your child is up to date on their vaccinations: Polio is a serious virus that can cause paralysis or in some cases, even death. Check your child's red book or contact your GP to check your child's vaccine status. If your child has missed one of their vaccinations, it's not too late, please contact your GP to book a vaccination as soon as you can.
Parents and carers can now find their nearest polio vaccination clinic using this new webpage https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/polio/vaccination-sites/. More information on the polio virus can be found here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/polio/
