Tetanus & Polio
Protection against tetanus and polio should be kept up to date. A full primary course with a booster at 15 years of age should be followed by at least two boosters at 10 year intervals to protect throughout life.
Annual protection against influenza is offered to patients aged 65 and over and those at high risk, e.g., with chronic heart, chest and breathing disorders, and diabetes.
Notice of our winter Flu Vaccination Programme will appear here and also on the News page.
The practice nurses will give advice on foreign travel and any other immunisations required.
A minimum of six weeks notice is ideally required, if a second appointment is required please ensure it is at least two weeks prior to travel to allow the vaccines to work. If you are unable to give this, you may wish to check whether we have an available appointment. If the nurses are fully booked you should be prepared to arrange your immunisation through a private travel clinic.
