Children with special educational needs or disabilities

Children with special educational needs or disabilities 

We understand children with special educational needs or disabilities may find vaccination sessions particularly stressful. Our immunisation nurses are very experienced at supporting children and young people who have additional needs and may be anxious about vaccinations.

We would like to offer all children the opportunity to receive their vaccinations in an appropriate and comfortable environment.

With this in mind we can offer the following options if you have a child with special educational needs or disabilities:

  • We can go to your child’s school and vaccinate – you may wish to be with them, but this is not a requirement.
  • We hold community clinics in the school holidays at various locations throughout Somerset that vary from children’s centres to hospitals. You can book at a location and time of your choice by calling Somerset SAINT on 0300 323 0032.
