Immunisations & Vaccinations
Baby Immunisation Clinics
Immunisations are vitally important as they protect your baby from diseases that can cause long-term health damage if caught when not immunised. Catching measles when not immunised can result in deafness, while catching childhood diseases such as mumps as an adult can make you very ill, and can cause problems such as sterility in males. By appointment at:
Rutland Lodge Thursday 11.00am – 12 noon
We are unable to weigh babies at these clinics, so you will need to attend a health visitor clinic.
Your baby’s six week check is carried out by a doctor; subsequent immunisations are done by the practice nurses. If you are unable to attend this clinic please book a nurses’ appointment.
If you plan to travel abroad please call your nearest travel clinic. Some travel injections can only be given through a dedicated travel clinic like Superdrug in the Merrion Center or Meanwood Road Doctors Surgery.We do not offer a full travel clinic and are unable to offer certain injection or malaria tablets also please be aware that not all travel injections are free and a fee must be paid for individual injections.
