Three doses of HPV vaccine given to girls by the school health service protect against cervical cancer.

Meningitis C

Age 2 to 17 The nasal flu vaccine is being rolled out to all children aged 2 to 19 years old. As the programme develops more children are being protected each year. Children aged two until school entry age are vaccinated in the practice. School age children are vaccinated at school. This is a seasonal vaccine and needs to be administered each year.
Adult Flu Vaccine All adults over the age of 65 are entitled to a flu vaccine in the surgery. In addition to this, adults in at-risk groups including those with chronic lung or heart conditions, chronic liver or kidney disease, diabetics, and pregnant women are also entitled and highly recommended to get the flu vaccine each year. This vaccine saves lives and prevents a lot of illness each year. We are proud that the practice achieves high uptake rates in all risk groups each year and we are keen to maintain this level of protection.
70 - 79 Years A Shingles vaccine is now being rolled out to adults aged between 70 and 79 years old. This is a one-off vaccine that gives protection against a debilitating and painful condition. Unfortunately stocks are a bit limited as the programme is being rolled out, so we would encourage everyone to take up the vaccine as soon as it is offered.
