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.
