We give free NHS vaccinations to children and adults to protect against a range of serious diseases. Ask us for details.

Babies and children

Vaccinating your child is a way of protecting them against serious disease.

Once a child has been immunised their bodies can fight those diseases if they come into contact with them.

To find out more, talk to your GP or health visitor, or contact our Reception for an appointment.

  Teenager

Teenagers who have been vaccinated when they were children will be offered booster injections – usually at school – to top up their protection. For example, the Td/IPV booster covers tetanus (T), diphtheria (d) and polio (IPV – inactivated polio vaccine).

They may also be offered other vaccines for TB, meningitis and cervical cancer (girls age 12-18).

To find out more or make an appointment, please contact our Reception.
