Immunisation

It is a priority that babies and children attending Witkoppen Health and Welfare Centre receive their appropriate immunisations to prevent specific childhood diseases. Developmental screening assessments are done to ensure that babies and children are developing according to their milestones.

To see what immunisations are recommended by the Department of Health, please click here for the Expanded Programme on Immunisation - EPI (SA) (Revised Childhood Immunisation Schedule from April 2009).

From the age of 6 months it is advisable for children to come every six months for Vitamin A and to be dewormed.
