In Ireland, all the recommended immunisations listed in the primary childhood immunisation schedule are free. See our Immunisation Schedule
Before your child is immunised, the doctor or nurse will check with you that your child is well and able to get the vaccines. If you have any worries or questions about your child’s immunisations, ask the doctor or nurse before your child is immunised. Parents Guide Immunisations
In addition to the HSE immunisation schedule we offer other childhood vaccines. Varivax, the Chickenpox Vaccine, is a vaccine many parents choose.
Varicella (Chicken Pox)
Chickenpox is a common illness that most children catch at some point. It is caused by a virus called Varicella-Zoster Virus (VZV) which is highly contagious. Sufferers are infectious from 2 days before the rash starts until all the blisters have crusted over, which is usually about 6 days later.
There is a vaccine to protect against Chickenpox called Varivax. It is about 98% effective at preventing Chickenpox. Varivax contains a small amount of the live weakened VZV which causes your immune system to produce antibodies that will help protect against Chickenpox. The vaccine is given in two doses 4-8 weeks apart.
There is a vaccine called Bexsero which protects against Meningitis B infection. It has been included on the HSE childhood immunisation schedule for all children born after 1st Oct 2016. For those born before that date it can be purchased privately. The schedule ranges from 2-3 doses as a primary course with a possible booster depending on the age of the child.
