This week is European Immunisation Week and doctors are asking their patients if they are up to date with their jabs, at a time so many diseases are avoidable with the right prevention.

We all know a little about the much discussed childhood vaccinations but according to a spokesman, several such as diphtheria, tetanus and polio should be updated throughout the adult years, and anyone in regular contact with children may be advised to be vaccinated against certain diseases such as measles and whooping cough.
