Preventive Medicine

  • Childhood Vaccination

    Childhood vaccination protects from serious infectious diseases. In Catalonia there is an official immunisation calendar which must be strictly followed.

    The paediatric team of the Primary Health Centre offers vaccines for children. If you have an accredited vaccination record card from another country, you must present it to your doctor.

    You can also get vaccinated at the immunisation centre of the Public Health Agency of Barcelona, Pl. Lesseps, 1; tel. 932 384 564. The Barcelona City Council will send a vaccination card by mail to the families of children of newly arrived registered persons. The card specifies and certifies the vaccines that have been administered.

  • Adult Vaccination

    Adult persons should also get vaccinated in order to prevent serious illnesses, like tetanus. Women who have not been vaccinated against measles may pass it unto their unborn child during pregnancy, which may result in a serious condition for the newborn. The family doctor will review your immunisation record and administer the necessary vaccines according to the official calendar. You can also visit the vaccination centre mentioned above.

  • Family Planning – PASSIR
