Detailed information can be found in our Childhood Vaccination page, on the NHS Vaccination Schedule website and our Travel Vaccinations page.
Please contact the surgery to book an appointment once you receive your notification slip from the Royal Alexandra Hospital. A baby's eight week check and the mother's post-natal examination is carried out by a doctor at the surgery at the same time as the first set of immunisations.
If you have any further questions the health visitor, practice nurse or doctor will be able to advise you.
Flu And Pneumococcal Infections (65 year olds and older & Special Groups)
We recommend vaccination against the flu infection in the autumn for those over the age of 65 and for those who have certain chronic medical conditions that put them at higher risk should they develop the flu. We also recommend vaccination against pneumococcal infection in those patients who are at higher risk of pneumococcal pneumonia. Please enquire at reception in September/early October.
Everyone should be protected by being immunised against this disease. A Tetanus vaccination is usually recommended for anyone who has not been vaccinated before, has not been fully vaccinated (in the UK this means five doses of Tetanus vaccine) or is travelling to a country with limited medical facilities, and whose last dose of the Tetanus vaccine was more than 10 years ago. Please contact our practice nurses if you need clarification about whether you are fully immunised.
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)
Please see this information in our Your Health section for detailed information about the HPV vaccination programme that started in Sept 2008. The majority of girls will be vaccinated at their secondary school.
We are NOT a yellow fever vaccination centre. Please make an appointment with a Yellow Fever centre elsewhere if you need to have this vaccination.
