Immunisations are essential to protect children from serious illness. We run a computerised recall system to remind parent's when their child's vaccinations are due.
Vaccinations for young children, those 8 weeks of age are given by a GP. All other vaccinations are given by Gill Gibbon, a member of our nursing team.
Immunisation clinics for children run weekly, from our main site in Selby, clinic times are as follows:
- Mondays from 10.30 am - 12.00 noon
- Wednesdays from 2.30 pm - 4.30 pm
For more details see the vaccination schedule.
Most vaccinations (including yellow fever) are given by the Practice Nurses. We stock most, but some unusual injections may need to be ordered. Whilst common injections are still available on the NHS, rarer ones are not, and a fee will be charged for them. You will be advised of the cost before the injection is ordered.
Certificates for travel are available and a fee will be charged for completion of these.
Adults are advised to have Tetanus and Polio boosters every 10 years.
Each autumn we run a Flu injection campaign, particularly important for those most at risk; those aged over 65, diabetics, asthmatics, those with chronic heart disease, chest and kidney problems.
