Immunisation Bookings

Please make sure to read the information below to ensure your appointment goes ahead smoothly.

Child Immunisations

Immunisation Records

Please bring your child’s previous immunisation records to their appointment. In the UK this is often called the ‘red book’.

Parental Permission

If your child is coming to their appointment with someone who does not have ‘parental responsibility’ such as a nanny, childminder or grandparent then please ensure that you give them a note with your written permission for the specific vaccine. If you have any questions beforehand for the doctor then please contact us by email before your appointment.

IMPORTANT: Chickenpox Vaccination

We routinely offer chickenpox vaccination which is a safe and effective way to prevent infection with the chickenpox (varicella) virus.

In order for the vaccine to be effective there MUST be a 4 week gap between the chickenpox vaccine and the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella vaccine) and any other live vaccine.

The only routine live vaccines in the childhood schedule are the chickenpox and MMR vaccines.

Adult and Travel Vaccinations

General Vaccinations

Please bring any previous vaccination records to your appointment. You may ask your NHS GP for a printout of your vaccination record.

Travel Vaccinations

Please bring details of your planned trip, including countries, stopovers and activities. Information on if you are going to visit rural areas, farming areas or have contact with animals for instance can all help to decide which vaccinations are recommended.

If you would like to check which vaccines are required then please look at the information on the TravelHealthPro website.
