Tetanus and Polio

We advise all adults that they should be protected from tetanus. For immunised adults who have received five doses, either in childhood or adulthood, booster doses are not recommended other than at the time of tetanus prone injuries, i.e. dog bites or gardening injuries. All adults should have received a full course of polio vaccine during childhood. If you were born before 1958, or think you have missed out on this please consult the practice nurse.

Influenza Vaccinations

Every October, we try to protect all our patients aged over 65 and those patients under 65 in at risk groups (listed here). Appointments are given with the practice nurse for the influenza vaccination. We also offer a vaccination to protect against pneumonia. In most cases the pneumonia vaccination is required only once in a lifetime.

The nurse will discuss this with you when you attend for flu vaccination. Please contact the surgery to make an appointment with the practice nurse for the flu vaccination.

If you are housebound and so unable to attend the surgery, a home visit can be arranged for flu vaccination.

Infant and Childhood Immunisation

Immunisation clinics are carried out between 1:20p.m. - 4:00p.m. on Thursday afternoons. These clinics are run by a general practitioner and practice nurses. To book an appointment contact the Health Centre receptionists.
