Vaccination Services For Kids

If you have recently had a baby, or your baby is starting to grow up, it is imperative that they have the infections they need to survive the early years of their life. We offer kids vaccination in Singapore, as well as vaccination for baby too. Whilst your baby or child grows up, there are a number of infectious diseases that can endanger them, as well as cause long-lasting damage to their health- consequences that will often last a lifetime. Your child’s immune system will need help to fight against such disease. By providing your baby with a vaccination, you can help provide them with protection against these diseases. Our vaccines help to stimulate your baby’s body to develop antibodies that help against the infection, ensuring that your baby is immune to developing the full symptoms. This prevents the development of such diseases and allows your baby or child to run around free of risk.


Why childhood immunisation is important?

Immunisation prepares the body to fight serious infections that have the potential to develop in the future. In general, young babies are extremely vulnerable to infections and as a result, they must be protected from them as soon as possible. To become fully protected, your child will require several different vaccines in order to be protected, most of which can be completed in a single vaccination.

Consequences of a child not having a vaccination

Due to the fact that most children in Singapore have been immunised, many infectious diseases have disappeared in the area. Whilst this does significantly decrease the likelihood of your child catching anything, it does not make them immune. In many countries all around the world, thousands of children die due to infectious diseases.


When your baby is not vaccinated they are at a much greater risk of catching an infectious disease. Such diseases include polio, measles, mumps and flu. They have a wide number of complications which are usually carried with the child for the rest of their lives. In some circumstances, death can occur.
