We know that when our little superheroes are not well it's very distressing.

We can vaccinate against a number of common childhood illnesses to help keep our superheroes fighting fit.  

Chickenpox is a common childhood disease causing very itchy red spots. Other symptoms may present including a high temperature, loss of appetite and generally feeling unwell. 

The chickenpox vaccine protects against the virus that causes chickenpox. It is not part of the routine childhood vaccination schedule and is currently only offered on the NHS to people who are in close contact with someone who is particularly vulnerable to chickenpox or its complications.

We can vaccinate children aged one year and over*. 

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is a very common group of viruses that are linked to the development of a number of cancers including cervical, anal, genital and cancers of the head and neck. 

 

The HPV vaccine currently used protects against four types of HPV. Two of these types of HPV are responsible for more than 70% of all cervical cancers. 

 

HPV vaccination requires two doses of the HPV vaccine. The first dose is currently offered as part of the routine NHS vaccination schedule to girls aged 12 and 13 in school year 8. The second dose is offered 6 to 12 months later. 

 

From the 2019/2020 school year, it is expected that 12- to 13-year-old boys will also be offered the HPV vaccine in the same way as girls. 

 

We are looking to offer this vaccination in the near future. Check back for updates. 

Meningitis B is a serious, life-threatening infection that can affect people of any age but is most common in babies and young children.

 

The Meningitis B vaccine protects against infection by meningococcal group B bacteria, which are responsible for more than 90% of meningococcal infections in young children.

 

Meningitis B vaccination was added to the NHS vaccination schedule for babies born on or after 1st May 2015. If your child was born on or before 30th April 2015 they will not have been given the vaccination as part of their routine vaccinations. 

 

We can vaccinate children six months of age and over*.

*All vaccinations are subject to inclusion/exclusion criteria to determine suitability.

MMR is the collective term for measles, mumps and rubella (German measles). All three of these diseases are highly infectious and can cause serious complications. 

 

MMR vaccination protects against all three diseases (measles, mumps and rubella) in a combined vaccine. It is the safest and most effective way to protect against these three diseases and since the introduction of the vaccine these conditions have become rare in the UK. 

 

We can vaccinate children aged one year and over*.
