We hold flu vaccination clinics each year during the autumn. If you are over 65, have a long term health condition, are pregnant or are a carer, you may be eligible for a flu vaccine.
If you are aged between 70 and 79 you will be eligible for your shingles vaccine. Everyone in this age group will be contacted to book in.
Tetanus and poliomyelitis are serious and sometimes fatal illnesses that can be prevented by immunisation. If you have had a full course of immunisation against these illnesses up to school leaving age you should be fully protected. If you are not protected please make an appointment with the practice nurse. The polio vaccination is especially important for parents of pre-school age infants attending for their immunisations.
Parents , please ensure your children receive the full immunisation programme. Details can be obtained from our practice nurse or health visitors. If you have any doubts about completion, please ask for advice.
Before bringing your baby for their Meningitis B vaccine, please give infant paracetamol. High rates of fever have been reported in infants receiving the Men B vaccine with their routine immunisations. Use of paracetamol has been advised for infants at the time of immunisation with the Men B vaccine to prevent fever. The guidance is that parents are to give 2.5ml (120mg/5ml) of liquid paracetamol to their babies around the time of immunisation or as soon as possible after the vaccines are administered. Parents will also be advised to give two further doses at 4-6 hourly intervals. Nurses will provide further information to parents at the immunisation appointments.
If you need vaccinations for travel, please check the latest advice online or contact the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. Once you know what vaccines you require you can contact our reception team on 0151 334 4019 or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org Our Practice Nurse will then get in touch with you to book in.
