Routine Immunisations for Adults and Children

We recommend that all adults should have DT booster every ten years. Certain occupations may require other immunisations.
We encourage certain patients with chronic diseases and all those above the age of 65 years to be vaccinated against influenza every year. This is available in the late September by prior arrangement. Please ask reception, before September, if you think you should receive a flu vaccine.
The childrens immunisation programmes change annually and so your child might be eligible for any new vaccination and will receive an invite from the surgery. We do advise that your child is vaccinated if the guidance recommends this.
