Our guest speaker will be Dr Tehseen Khan who you may already know from his incredible work on improving vaccination uptake.
Dr Khan and his colleagues will tell us about:
  • Why vaccination is important and the safest way to protect yourself and your child?
  • Vaccines – are they safe for my child? What's in it?
  • NHS vaccinations and when to have them?
  • Vaccination tips for parents
 This event is a great opportunity to bring awareness of the importance of vaccination especially at an early age, therefore I would greatly appreciate your help in promoting the event with your patients.
