Child Health

Child's health includes physical, mental and social well-being.

It is also important for children to get regular check-ups with their health care provider. These visits are a chance to check your child's development. They are also a good time to catch or prevent problems.

Staying healthy is vital for proper growth and development of their mind and body. Children need enough energy to sustain them throughout the day and the have different needs at different age groups.

We will share expert advice and guidelines that will hopefully contribute towards the health of our children.

Childhood Vaccinations

Expanded Programme on Immunisation – EPI (SA)

There are many ways to protect your child against childhood diseases as they grow up. When it comes to protection against certain childhood diseases, vaccination is strongly recommended by the Department of Health (DoH). Children need to be vaccinated in order to protect them from certain infectious, dangerous and preventable diseases.

The vaccines on the EPI programme are provided free of charge by the South African Government at government and municipal clinics. Private clinics (such as clinics in pharmacies) and private nurses and doctors also provide these vaccines for free, but require a consultation fee; this usually includes a counselling session that monitors, among other things, the growth and development of the baby.
