Immunisation

Seasonal Flu

Seasonal flu is a highly infectious illness caused by a flu virus.
 
The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, causing a sudden high temperature and general aches and pains.
 
You could also lose your appetite, feel nauseous and have a dry cough. Symptoms can last for up to a week.
 
We offer 'at risk' groups the flu vaccine at a certain time each year to protect you against the flu virus.
 
You may be invited for a flu jab if you are:

  • over 65 years of age
  • pregnant
  • or have:
    • a serious heart or chest complaint, including asthma
    • serious kidney disease
    • diabetes
    • lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as
    • steroid medication or cancer treatment
    • if you have ever had a stroke

If you have any queries please contact the surgery.

Your enquiry will be looked at and replied to by one of our Practice Nurses, who will contact you back within 48 hours advising you which vaccinations are required. Please allow plenty of time before travelling, as some vaccinations require a course of injections. Patients are advised to look at the following web sites for vaccination information:  
We have been advised by Bexley CCG that many of the travel vaccinations will now only be available privately and so will no longer be able to stock them in the surgery.

Childhood Immunisations

One of the most important things that a parent can do for their child is to make sure that they have all their routine childhood vaccinations. It's the most effective way of keeping them protected against infectious diseases.

Ideally, children should have their jabs at the right age to protect them as early as possible and minimise the risk of infection.

Find out which jabs your child needs, when they need them, and what the benefits of each jab are.

Please call the surgery to make an appointment.
