Information for parents/carers
Children’s BCG Team lead: Sarah Solomon-Ayeh
We are a team of nurses, support workers and administration staff, based at the Child and Family Centre in Barking. We support the delivery of the BCG vaccination to four London Boroughs, Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Redbridge and Waltham Forest.
Neonatal BCG vaccinations are offered to infants and children from birth up to the age of 5 years 364 days, living within Barking and Dagenham, Waltham Forest and Havering and Redbridge. This is a targeted service for infants and children that meet the NHS England criteria.
