Flu Vaccine and Pneumonia Vaccine

Influenza is still a major cause of illness and can lead to more serious diseases in those people who, for whatever reason, are more susceptible. It is therefore particularly targeted towards “at risk” groups such as the elderly, those with chest disease such as asthma or emphysema, diabetics and those with low immune systems or on steroids. People outside these groups may still be eligible for vaccination.

The vaccine is made new each year depending on the ‘flu strain which is around that season, hence revaccination is required yearly, usually in October or November. It provides protection against flu but unfortunately does not prevent the common cold or other viruses.

Pneumonia vaccine is only required once and gives protection against pneumococcus. Again, it is recommended for the "elderly and at risk" groups and is vital for those who have had the spleen removed.

We organise and publicise a flu campaign each autumn; please monitor any prescriptions for messages/announcements/text messages for further information.

Asthma Clinic

This is held in regular nursing hours by appointment and there is also a COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) clinic with a specialist respiratory nurse.

Diabetic Clinic

This is held in regular nursing hours by appointment only, we will send you an invite out when your review is due.

Baby Clinics and Child Health Surveillance Clinics

Baby immunisations are carried out during normal nursing hours.

Post Natal Checks and your child's 6 week check need to be carried out BEFORE your child can receive any vaccinations.

How to Protect Your Child

There are very few medical reasons for not having your child immunised. If you are concerned please discuss this with our practice nurse or doctor.

Advice and Care Following Immunisations

After any of the following injections, children may be irritable or have a temperature. You should keep the child cool and they should be given the appropriate dose of baby paracetamol to bring down the temperature and have some of their clothes removed. Follow this with a second dose four to six hours later. If your baby is two to three months old, the dose is 60mg of paracetamol. You can get a special oral syringe from the pharmacist for measuring the right amount. Contact the practice if you are worried. Sometimes the skin becomes red and swollen around the place where the injection was given, or a small lump appears and may take a few weeks to disappear. Don’t worry, this is perfectly normal and your child’s next injection need not usually be delayed.

Following MMR, children may experience a rubella-type illness, ie rash and/or temperature 7-21 days following the injection. This is self-limiting and non-infectious and should be treated as above. If you are worried that this is not resolving, please contact us for advice.
