Babies born in Cyprus are entitled to healthcare at the town’s General Hospitals. If you have private cover it is advisable that you choose paediatrician during your pregnancy so that he/she can be present at the birth. Your paediatrician sets the timetable of when and how often your baby should be brought in for check-ups and vaccinations. These immunisations can also be obtained free of charge at any public hospital. Your baby will be given a booklet/child record book which must be taken to each doctor’s appointment; it is used for children up to the age of six years and is in Greek, but all vaccinations are detailed in English too.
