CHILDHOOD IMMUNISATIONS

The practice follows the national policy for childhood immunisation. Further information can be found on the NHS Immunisation Schedule website.

We believe that full immunisation is vital if you wish to protect your child and the practice offers the full range of childhood vaccinations. Your baby should have their first immunisations at two months old. Further immunisations will be offered according to current national guidelines.

Immunisations

Many 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.
