Drop in Flu Clinic 6.30pm to 7.30pm 11th December 2019  - Who needs protection against flu?

Flu is more likely to be serious if you have a long-term health condition, are pregnant, or are 65 or older. Every year in Wales three-quarters of a million people have a flu vaccine.

You are pregnant

You are aged 65 or over

You live in a residential or nursing home

You have a heart problem

You have a chest complaint or breathing difficulties, including asthma that needs regular steroid inhalers or tablets

You have kidney disease

You have lowered immunity due to disease or treatment (such as steroid or cancer treatment)

You have liver disease

You have had a stroke (or mini stroke)

Vaccines (Immunisations)

Vaccination list

Here you will find a comprehensive checklist of the vaccines that are routinely offered to everyone in the UK for free on the NHS, (children and adults) and the ages at which they should ideally be given.

Childrens Vaccines - these are done by our Health visitors in our surgery. Parents are sent a letter when their child is due for their next injection. We advise that all children should have the complete course of recommended immunisations. If your child is not immunised, then as well as a risk to themselves, they may pose a risk to other children as they may be a carrier for these diseases.  Try to make sure you or your child have vaccinations delivered on time to ensure protection. If you're going to be away from the GP surgery when a vaccination is due, talk to your Health visitor. It may be possible to arrange for vaccination at a different location.

Adult Vaccines - These are done by our practice nurse team and some vaccinations can be given by our Health Care Assistants.

Flu vaccination see under Quick Links also

Travel Vaccines - There are some travel vaccines that you should be able to have free on the NHS from Church surgery. These include the hepatitis A vaccine, the typhoid vaccine and the cholera vaccine. Other travel vaccines, such as yellow fever vaccination, are only available privately. Find out more from our section on travel vaccinations.
