- 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.
- Influenza vaccination 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. Clinics are held annually between September and November and advertised well in advance on the Home Page and in the waiting room.
- Pneumococcal vaccination A single dose is also recommended for adults aged 65 and over. Pneumococcal immunisation is also recommended for people of any age who have certain diseases that put them at risk, e.g., asplenia or splenic dysfunction.
- Shingles vaccination (Shingles is also known as 'Herpes Zoster') A vaccine to prevent shingles, a common, painful skin disease is available on the NHS to people in their 70s. The shingles vaccine is given as a single injection into the upper arm. Unlike the flu jab, you'll only need to have the vaccination once and you can have it at any time of the year.
