Immunisations

We provide a full vaccination and immunisation service, with childhood immunisations usually carried out .The practice nurse usually gives tetanus, flu and most foreign travel immunizations. For foreign travel immunisations it is important to get in touch at least eight weeks before travel. Flu vaccinations are usually offered in October and are recommended for patients with diabetes, heart and chest disease and for anyone over 65.
