World Immunisation Week

As it's World Immunisation Week (24-30 April), NHS England is reminding people how important it is to keep up to date with routine vaccinations at all life stages.

 

The annual event, which is championed by the World Health Organisation (WHO), promotes the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against preventable diseases – many of which are available through the NHS in England.

 

It is important to know that vaccinations are rigorously tested to the highest safety standards. 

 

Ranging from pre-school vaccinations like MMR, to flu and shingles which are available to older age groups, all stages of the NHS vaccination schedule are vital for protecting the wider population’s health. This in turn, decreases pressure on the NHS and reduces hospital admissions.

 

If people didn’t manage to book their own or their child’s vaccine appointments when invited during the pandemic, they are urged to make an appointment with the GP practice they are registered at as soon as possible.

For more information on the NHS vaccination schedule, please visit


LATEST INFORMATION ON COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS


COVID booster jabs and flu vaccinations are still available at the surgery, please contact Reception on 01228 791328 to book


Whilst we offer the local service which may be able to get you an appointment sooner, close, or more conveniently than the larger booking centres, you can book your first, second, third or booster vaccination by calling 119 or by visiting the National Booking Service website on the link below:

Updates

Latest advice from the Government is that any person wishing to see a doctor or nurse needs to have their problem assessed via a telephone call before they are seen. Therefore we are unable to see walk-in patients without prior arrangement.

 

Please go home and call Reception on 01228 791328 who will be able to give you advice as to what needs to be done.

Thank you for your cooperation
