This practice follows the national policy for childhood immunisation. Further information can be found on the NHS Immunisation Schedule website.

 

Flu Immunisation

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; usually drop in clinics for adults in September/October each year and weekday clinics by appointment after these have been held.

You may be invited for a flu jab if you are:

  • over 65 years of age
  • pregnant
  • are a carer
  • 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
    • dysfunction of the spleen
    • if you have ever had a stroke / TIA

If you have any queries please contact the surgery.

 

Childhood Immunisation

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.

Child Services will send you an appointment for your child, from Monksfield Surgery, when their jabs are due.  If you need to re-arrange this appointment, or think your child has missed their immunisations, please phone the surgery to book a telephone consultation with the Child Immunisations Administrator.
