Vaccinations

Here you’ll find information on the following vaccinations and immunisations via the downloadable information sheets.

Please note that this is not a full list of the vaccinations we offer – we are able to administer these and many more, including many of the routine immunisations.

Please note that patients may have a transient reaction to any vaccination. This can include pain and inflammation at the injection site, transient fever, and flu-like symptoms. If these are severe or persist for longer than 24 hours please contact the Doctor.

Routine

In addition we would recommend you consider some of these other vaccinations:

Bexsero (Meningitis B) – Bexsero was introduced into the routine NHS immunisation schedule for babies in September 2015, but, as yet, there are no plans for a ‘catch-up’ programme. We are now able to purchase Bexsero again, following supply issues earlier this year. Please click here for details, and here for the immunisation schedule. 

Varivax (Chicken pox)

Zostavax (Shingles) – Zostavax vaccine is available on the NHS only for people aged 70.

Travel

We advise that you plan well ahead with regards to your travel vaccinations, as often immunity is not acquired immediately and some may be courses administered over several months.

Please visit Fit For Travel to check which travel vaccinations you may require. If you are unsure which, if any, vaccinations you may need do not hesitate to call.

The travel vaccinations we currently offer are:

Hepatitis A

Hepatitis B

Typhoid

Japanese Encephalitis

Rabies

Cholera

Please enquire about any not listed as we may be able to obtain them for you.

Antimalarials are important when travelling in high-risk areas. These are usually given in the form of tablets, as there is not a vaccination. There are several options available, please call to enquire.

Unfortunately we are unable to administer the Yellow Fever vaccine.
