Protecting baby begins at pregnancy

  • immunisation during pregnancy protects baby and you
  • you can protect your baby when they are most vulnerable to whooping cough and influenza
  • immunise on time, every time
  • enrolling your baby with a General Practice as soon as they are born helps them get the care they need
