on Thursday, 07 February 2013.

Pneumonia vaccination

This vaccination helps protect against pneumococcus, a common cause of pneumonia and meningitis.


Flu Vaccination

Influenza, commonly known as flu, is an acute viral and highly contagious respiratory infection. The NHS provides the vaccine to groups who are particularly at risk, such as the elderly and those who suffer with asthma. Some employers will offer the vaccine to their staff to keep them healthy over the winter period. Please contact us for more information on workplace vaccinations. This vaccine is available to anyone aged 3 years+.

Nasal Flu Vacine

Flu Vaccination - Nasal vaccine

Fluenz vaccination is an effective flu vaccine for children from 2 years old up to 18 years.

For first time vaccinations 2 vaccines are required only for the first year and then single doses are required each year.

What is it? 
A single dose up each nostril is given which is very well tolerated.
