NHS vaccinations

It's important that you have the vaccinations you need to keep you safe and to minimise the risk of infections.

We offer a number of vaccinations at our surgery. Your GP or nurse will be able to let you know what vaccinations you need.

You can also find more information about vaccinations and when to have them on the NHS vaccination schedule (NHS website).

Childhood immunisation

It's important to make sure that your child has all of their routine childhood vaccinations. It's the most effective way of keeping them protected against infectious diseases.

Ideally, children should have their vaccinations at the right age to protect them as early as possible and to minimise the risk of infection.

Your GP or nurse will be able to tell you what vaccinations children need. You can also find more information about children’s vaccinations and benefits on the Vaccinations page on the NHS website.

Flu Vaccinations

Seasonal flu is highly infectious illness that’s caused by a flu virus. The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, and can cause a high temperature, aches and pains. A flu vaccination can help limit your risk of getting the flu. 

Our surgery offers flu vaccinations to patients. We offer two routine vaccinations – one for patients under 65 years if you are clinically at risk and another vaccine for all patients over 65 years.  

You can contact the surgery to find out more about flu vaccinations or visit the Flu Influenza vaccine page on the NHS website 

Travel vaccinations

We only provide the vaccinations available on the NHS. These are

  • Cholera
  • Diphtheria, polio and tetanus booster
  • hepatitis A – some combined vaccines, such as combined hepatitis A and B
  • typhoid

We can provide you with a list of your current vaccinations or you can view them on the NHS App.

It may take up to eight weeks for a full course of vaccinations, so please contact us well in advance to give yourself plenty of time if you're planning to go abroad where you're required to be vaccinated.

We do not provide non-NHS travel vaccinations. 

You can find useful information about travel vaccinations on the Travel vaccinations page on the NHS website.
