Our GPs provide advice and administer routine and travel vaccinations for children and adults, some of which are not available on the NHS.
What are vaccinations and why do I need them?
A vaccine, also known as a vaccination or immunisation, is a substance which makes the body produce antibodies against a certain illness or disease. Antibodies use our immune system to protect us from contracting an illness.
It is important to make sure that you are up-to-date with your routine UK vaccination schedule, as well as being covered for any trips abroad. Helpful travel advice websites include FitForTravel and Travax.
We offer a number of routine vaccinations including the MMR vaccine for Measles, Mumps and Rubella, the chickenpox vaccination, HPV virus vaccination for men and woman and the vaccination against shingles.

4 key facts you should know
Vaccines protect you and your children
Having vaccinations can protect you and your children from many serious and potentially deadly diseases. They also protect other people in the community by helping to stop the spread of illness to people who are unable to be vaccinated.
Vaccines are safety tested
Vaccines are tested for years before being introduced and are constantly monitored for any side effects which may occur. Some people can experience mild side effects such as arm pain or a fever. Your Doctor will advise if there is any reason you should not be vaccinated.
Vaccinations do not cause allergies
Evidence suggests that vaccinating is safer than not vaccinating. They do not contain ingredients that cause harm in such small amounts, although it is important to speak to your doctor if you have any known allergies such as eggs or gelatine. They do not contain mercury, overload or weaken the immune system and there is no evidence of a link between vaccinations and autism.
Vaccines protect the community
Vaccines reduce or completely eradicate some diseases if enough people are vaccinated within the community. They are the best form of defence against disease for you and your family, and it is for this reason that they are recommended.
