The Department of Health recommends that all children are immunised to protect against a range of diseases. Your health visitor an practice nurse will tell you about these and invitations to bring your children for vaccination will be sent to you at the appropriate time.
We advise all adults (especially farmers and gardeners) to be protected against Tetanus. Please check your immunity status with the reception staff.
We off a range of travel immunisations and advice. Please ask the receptionist for a travel form which you need to complete prior to your appointment with the Practice Nurse. Please allow at least eight weeks before travel if possible. A charge is payable for some travel vaccinations.
The Department of Health recommends flu vaccination for patients of all ages with heart, chest or kidney disease, diabetes and some other chronic diseases. It is also recommended for all people over the age of 65 years, carers, pregnant women, 2, 3, 4,5 and 6 year olds and for residents of nursing homes. Flu vaccinations are usually available from October of each year. Please contact the surgery towards the end of September for further information and/or to book an appointment.
