Vaccinations at 12 months
At 12 months, three age-specific vaccines are recommended for your child. These include:
- a vaccine that protects against meningococcal disease
- a vaccine that protects against pneumococcal disease
- a combined vaccine that protects against measles, mumps, and rubella.
It is also recommended that your child is vaccinated against influenza every year before the influenza season. Influenza vaccines are free for all children aged six months to under five years, and can be given at the same time as age-specific vaccines.
