Immunisation

Flu Immunisation

Seasonal flu is a highly infectious illness caused by a flu virus.

The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, causing a sudden high temperature and general aches and pains.

You could also lose your appetite, feel nauseous and have a dry cough. Symptoms can last for up to a week.

We offer 'at risk' groups the flu vaccine at a certain time each year to protect you against the flu virus; usually drop in clinics for adults in September/October each year and weekday clinics by appointment after these have been held.

You may be invited for a flu jab if you are:

  • over 65 years of age
  • pregnant
  • are a carer
  • or have:
    • a serious heart or chest complaint, including asthma
    • serious kidney disease
    • diabetes
    • lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment
    • dysfunction of the spleen
    • if you have ever had a stroke / TIA
If you have any queries please contact the surgery.

Travel Services

Before travelling overseas, it is important to be aware of the possible health risks and how to prevent problems, or minimise the chances of them occurring. Most importantly, you should know:

  • whether there are any specific health risks in the country you are travelling to for which you need to take precautions - for example, malaria
  • how to avoid becoming ill when you are abroad
  • what to do if you do become ill when you are abroad
  • how to get emergency medical treatment when you are abroad

Our travel services offer advice on travel illnesses and a full range of vaccinations. In order for you to prepare for travel. Please make an appointment for an initial telephone consultation with the Travel Administrator.

If you are travelling abroad you will need to start thinking about your travel vaccinations 4-6 weeks before you're due to leave as some vaccinations can take time to become effective.

Malaria is a parasitic infection spread by mosquitoes. This video explains out how the infection attacks different areas of the body and what you can do to avoid getting the disease in the first place.

 

In the UK, 2,000 people a year die from malignant melanoma, and it's increasing. See an expert and real people talk about how to stay safe in the sun.

Childhood Immunisation

One of the most important things that a parent can do for their child is to make sure that they have all their routine childhood vaccinations. It's the most effective way of keeping them protected against infectious diseases.

Ideally, children should have their jabs at the right age to protect them as early as possible and minimise the risk of infection.

Child Services will send you an appointment for your child, at either Abbey House or Monksfield Surgery, when their jabs are due.  If you need to re-arrange this appointment, or think your child has missed their immunisations, please phone the surgery to book a telephone consultation with the Child Immunisations Administrator.
