There is currently a shortage of BCG vaccinations for newborn babies. If your baby did not receive one at birth from the hospital, please contact NHS England via england.contactus@nhs.net for further information and advice .

 

Free Meningitis ACWY vaccination available for all 18 to 19 year olds and new university entrants starting from August 2016 onwards. Meningococcal bacteria can cause meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain) and septicaemia (blood poisoning). Both diseases are very serious and can kill, especially if not diagnosed early. It’s recommended that all first time university entrants (‘freshers’) have the MenACWY vaccine before or soon after they start university.  New university students are at particularly high risk in the first weeks of term when they will come into contact with many new people of a similar age. You should get vaccinated straight away – ideally in your first week of term – don’t leave it until later. Please call us on 0208 630 3822 to book an appointment with the nurse.

 

You are eligible for the shingles vaccine if you are aged 70 or 78 years old.

In addition, anyone who is eligible for immunisation in the previous three years of the programme but missed out on their shingles vaccination remains eligible until their 80th birthday. This includes:

- people in their 70s who were born after 1 September 1942
- people aged 79 years

The shingles vaccination is not available if you are aged 80 or over. If you are eligible the shingles vaccine will normally be offered to you at the same time as the flu vaccination and can be given together. Please call to speak to reception if you would like more information.
