Default baby vaccinations

Hello all, my baby is coming on 4 months old and she needs her second vaccinations she got her first in Switzerland where she was born, I called the hospital where she is registered and they told me I have to go somewhere else to get them, does anyone know what this place is called or where the local one is for 03015 Alicante?

Children here go to the local surgery here in town. But I do believe you can go to a private doctor for them.

... I've found that if you don't have a SIP card, then it MUST be done privately.

We needed to get our children checked for change of school etc. but because we aren't pensioners (with the necessary S1/E121) and because we don't work, we can't get SIP cards for any of us so the local health centre won't do the necessary checks.

For us there is no choice - and I thought Spain looked after children

There arent many families in Spain where noone works, but they have the income to be able to CHOOSE to not work and yet they WILL NOT pay social security contributions or private medical insurance. That is the only situation where someone will have to pay for children's vaccinations.

You have to decide whether you can afford to not work or not!

People who are "sin recursos" get their healthcare paid for and their childrens healthcare for free, so the only children that "go without" are those who have parents who are deliberately (or ignorantly) not looking after them.
