Vaccinations

Vaccinations and immunisations are an important part in public health, and we offer a variety of immunisations at the surgery.

Some Common Vaccination Types

Shingles

Shingles is an infection that causes a painful rash, and it is caused by a reactivation of the chicken pox virus.

More information can also be found on this helpful website.

Pneumococcal

The pneumococcal vaccine protects against serious and potentially fatal pneumococcal infections. It's also known as the pneumonia vaccine.

More information can also be found on this helpful website.

Flu

Flu is a common infectious viral illness, which usually gets better on its own, but it can make some people seriously ill.

We offer flu vaccines to many of our patients from September through to March each year. 

Eligibility

Eligible patients will be offered the relevant vaccine at the appropriate time, but if you're interested in finding out more, please do speak to one of our amazing nursing team.

We would strongly encourage all eligible patients to take up the offer of an immunisation at the earliest opportunity. It's good for you, and it's good for our population as a whole. Young or old, please get vaccinated!

More information about vaccinations for children can be found on our Baby Clinic pages.
