Hertfordshire and East Anglia Community and School Age Immunisation Service

About the Service

The Hertfordshire and East Anglia Community and School Age Immunisation Service primarily provides vaccinations to children aged from 5-19 years of age who attend school in the Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Norfolk and Suffolk local education authorities, or people resident within these county council areas and in alternative or home-schooled based arrangements.

We also provide BCG and At-Risk monovalent Hepatitis B vaccinations to babies and young children in these areas, ensuring people in need are able to access these vaccinations in a combination of community vaccination settings and in their own home.

Our current remit is in excess of 550,000 school aged and eligible people spread across these areas – and we attend to all vaccination needs for these people following a yearly planned programme. We have been commissioned to deliver the school immunisation programme to all schools in Hertfordshire, and have recently expanded to East Anglia. We work in partnership with Vaccination UK (who deliver our influenza programme between October and January each year) and schools, including state, independent, special schools and pupil referral units, and offer community clinics for young people who are educated at home. We also respond to cases of disease outbreaks in the community such as measles or mumps.

We hold community catch-up clinics that allow us to address vaccinations you or your child may have missed at school and have assisted during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the ongoing delivery of all childhood vaccinations. 

If you have any concerns that you are eligible but have not received an invitation or heard from us regarding catch-up – or are home-schooling your child and have not received a letter directly from us – please contact the team using the details below:
