Please make an appointment for the weekly clinic.
School Leavers Booster Vaccination
This is normally given at school but if this is missed for any reason then please let us know and our practice nurses should be able to arrange for it to be given at the surgery.
Our nurses will be happy to discuss your vaccination requirements and arrange a schedule for your vaccinations. You should let us know at least 6 weeks prior to your departure so that we have sufficient time to arrange your schedule as in many cases multiple doses are required.There is a questionnaire that we will ask you to complete before any discusions can take place. If you are travelling'off the beaten track' or to an area with complex vaccination requirments, we may recommend that you seek guidance from a specialist travel clinic. In these cases we will let you know when we receive the completed questionnaire.
You should be aware that not all travel vaccinations are available free on the NHS. Our nurses will discuss any costs with you when agreeing your schedule. A leaflet giving details of our current charges is available from reception.
Flu and Pneumonia vaccinations
These are available for anyone at risk, usually from early October each year. Appointments for vaccination can generally be made from early September onwards. Please follow the link from the home page for more information about protecting yourself from flu.
Whilst Flu vaccination is required every year to be effective, pneumonia vaccination is usually only required once (although in some cases repeat vaccination every 5 years may be required). The nurse or doctor will be happy to advise you on this.
