Immunisations

vaccMany potentially fatal childhood diseases have been virtually eradicated in the UK due the availability of vaccinations. It is very important that babies and children are fully immunised. Reminders are sent out by the Health Authority and appointments can be made via our reception. Tetanus infection may develop in wounds picked up in a garden or street. We recommend that everyone has a booster every 10 years.

Flu injections

This is carried out on a yearly basis, usually in the autumn.

Pneumonia injections

An effective immunisation now exists for any type of pneumonia and is recommended for those with Chronic Heart and chest disease. One injection is usually enough for life. It is especially recommended for those who have had their spleen removed by surgery, have kidney or immune problems or Diabetes.

Travel Vaccines

Many people travel further afield, if you are in any doubt as to what vaccines are required for a particular area, we advise that you contact MASTA (0891 224100) for the latest up to date advice and then make an appointment with the Surgery at least one month before your travel date.
