Child Immunisations

Childhood immunisations are available by appointment with our four trained practice nurses.  If you wish to discuss the vaccinations before going ahead then the doctors or practice nurses are happy to answer and queries you have.

Teenage Vaccinations

HPV vaccination against cervical cancer will be offered to girls at the age 12 by the school nurse and the tetanus, diptheria and polio booster and meningitis ACWY will be offered to all children at 14-15 years of age at school.  The practice nurses are happy to vaccinate any children who have missed their booster at school.
