We run seasonal and routine vaccination clinics.

Since vaccines were introduced in the UK, diseases like smallpox, polio and tetanus that used to kill or disable millions of people are either gone or seen very rarely. 

Other diseases like measles and diphtheria have been reduced by up to 99.9% since their vaccines were introduced. 

However, if people stop having vaccines, it’s possible for infectious diseases to quickly spread again. 

All vaccines are thoroughly tested to make sure they will not harm you or your child. 

It often takes many years for a vaccine to make it through the trials and tests it needs to pass for approval. 

Once a vaccine is being used in the UK it’s also monitored for any rare side effects by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)

Anyone can report a suspected side effect of vaccination to the MHRA through the Yellow Card Scheme.

We follow the NHS vaccination schedule 

  • HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) vaccine for 12 to 13 year old girls in year 8 and boys aged 12 to 13 years at school in year 8 
  • DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and polio) teenage booster for 13 to 14 year old girls and boys in year 9 
  • Meningococcal (Meningitis) ACWY vaccine for 13 to 14 year old girls and boys in year 9 
  • Seasonal influenza (‘flu) vaccination (Reception class and years 1, 2, 3, 4,5 and 6) 

Parents can call the catch-up clinic for those children who have been absent during school vaccination programmes or for young people who are educated at home or have an individual need 

At the surgery, we usually see children at 

  • 8 weeks  
  • 12 weeks 
  • 16 weeks 
  • 1 year 
  • 2-3 years for the nasal seasonal flu vaccination 
  • 3 years and 4 months 

If your child has not been seen by the nurse and received their immunisations they may be late and therefore not protected. You can have a look in the red book, but if in doubt, do not hesitate to contact us ASAP. 

We offer vaccination against the whooping cough from 16 weeks of pregnancy to protect newborns form a potentially lethal disease. We offer the flu jab during the flu season
