Tetanus

Most adults have received five immunisations during childhood and will not require any further boosters. If you are unsure then ask us to check your records.

Influenza

Annual protection against influenza is offered to patients over the age of 65 and those at high risk, eg with chronic heart, chest and breathing disorders and diabetes.

Pneumococcal

Protects against pneumococcal infection that can cause pneumonia, septicaemia and meningitis. Vaccination lasts at least 10 years. Protection is offered to patients aged over 65 and those at high risk eg with chronic heart or lung disorders, diabetes and splenectomy.

Hepatitis B

Some jobs expose you to a risk of Hepatitis B, eg nurses. The checking of your immune status and giving the vaccination should be arranged by your employer. If, however, you have any problems or questions then please discuss with a doctor or nurse.

Travel Immunisations

The practice nurses will give advice on foreign travel and any other immunisations required. We are a recognised Yellow Fever Centre.
