Immunisations: What are the key inequalities?

Supporting Information

Evidence shows that the following groups of children and young people are at risk of not being fully immunised: children and young people who have missed previous vaccinations; looked after children; children with physical or learning difficulties; children of teenage or lone parents; children not registered with a general practitioner; younger children from large families; children who are hospitalised; minority ethnic groups; vulnerable children, such as those whose families are travellers, asylum seekers or homeless. Uptake of vaccines varies greatly by GP practice in Lewisham.
