Experiences of Childhood Immunisations in Bradford during COVID-19

This report sets out the findings of a survey we conducted from August to October 2020.
Experiences of Childhood Immunisations in Bradford during COVID-19

Summary

This survey took place to find out to what extent Bradford district was following the national picture of below average figures for take-up of childhood immunisations in 2020 compared to 2019. We wanted to find out about care-givers’ experiences of taking their children for routine immunisation appointments and to assess whether the pandemic was adversely affecting take-up.   

Our findings include:

  • Bradford appears to have followed the national trend, neither better nor worse
  • Although take-up dropped during the first weeks of lockdown, it recovered once surgeries re-opened and followed strict guidelines and procedures
  • Guidelines and procedures now in place for childhood immunisation appointments should reduce any negative perceptions from now on.
