Polio boosters


Children aged 1 to 9 living in London are being offered a dose of polio vaccine.

For some children, this is an extra dose, or other children it may bring them up to date with their routine vaccination.

Boosting immunity in children should help protect them and reduce the risk of the virus continuing to spread.
