Hepatitis B vaccination requires three injections for immunity - followed by a blood test to confirm full immunity.

Pneumococcal vaccination 37.00 37.00
details
print the details of this service

Pneumococcal vaccinations boost immunity against the pneumococcus bacteria (streptococcus pneumoniae) which is responsible for a significantproportion of pneumonia in adults and also for some meningitis and septic joint diseases in adults and children. Normally healthy subjects have good immunity to infection, but if resistance is lowered for any reason (prolonged stress, exposure to cold, age over 65 years, spleen removal or other illnesses affecting the immune system) infection may strike with devastating consequences - there is a 10% death rate in those who contract an infection if they are over 65 years old.

All persons over 65 years old should be vaccinated. It is often given at the same time as the flu jab, but can be also given at any other time if desired.

Others we would recommend having the vaccine are those with chronic heart or lung disease, liver disease, alcoholism, spleen removal or diabetes mellitus. A single vaccination is all that is necessary, and immunity usually lasts a lifetime. It should NOT be repeated within 3 years as a marked reaction may follow, but in spleen removal patients it may be boosted at 5 years.

We use the 23-valent vaccine (active immunity is developed against 23 varieties of the infective agent) for all persons over 2 years of age.

Tuberculosis - BCG 49.00 49.00
details
print the details of this service

Tuberculosis (abbreviated as TB for tubercle bacillus or Tuberculosis) is a common and potentially fatal infectious disease caused by mycobacteria, mainly Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Tuberculosis most commonly attacks the lungs (as pulmonary TB) but can also affect the central nervous system, the lymphatic system the circulatory system, the genitourinary system, bones, joints and even the skin.

One-third of the world current population has been infected by TB, and new infections occur at a rate of one per second. Not everyone infected develops the full-blown disease; asymptomatic, latent infection is most common.

A rising number of people in the developed world are contracting tuberculosis because their immune systems are compromised by immunosuppressive drugs, substance abuse or HIV/AIDS.

Tuberculosis Skin Test 62.00 49.00

details
print the details of this service

The Meningitis ACWY vaccine protects against 4 different causes of meningitis and septicaemia - meningococcal (Men) A, C, W and Y diseases.

Cases of meningitis and septicaemia (blood poisoning) caused by Men W bacteria are rising, due to a particularly deadly strain. Old teenagers and university students are at high risk of infection because they tend to live in close contact in shared accommodation, such as university halls of residence.

Men ACWY vaccine is given by single injection into the upper arm. One dose is all that is required.

The vaccine is suitable for children from age 2 to adult and is being rolled out to all new students starting university this year (2015) under the NHS. Year 13 (upper 6th) students will be offered the vaccine through their NHS GP.

Southern Independent Medical Practice are pleased to offer this vaccine to anyone who would like to benefit from this protection.

Chicken Pox (Varicella) Vaccination 72.50 72.50
details
print the details of this service
In America and Canada all children are vaccinated against this childhood disease through their Government immunisation programme.
In the UK, the NHS does not offer this as a free vaccination to young children. We are pleased to offer this vaccine, if required.
 
Vaccinations are given from 9 months of age to prevent children getting chicken pox and passing the infection on to people in whom this can be a very serious disease.
It is now recommended that infants between the ages of 9 and 12 months receive 2 doses of the vaccine with a minimum interval of 3 months between doses.
Children aged 12 months to 12 years should receive 2 doses of the vaccine at least 1 month apart.
Children over the age of 13 and adults should receive 2 doses of the vaccine 4 to 8 weeks apart.
 
Chicken Pox kills 25 children and adults every year in the UK.

Single Measles Mumps and Rubella Vaccination

Although Southern Independent Medical Practice advises that children should be immunised with MMR in line with Department of Health guidelines, we do recognise that some parents have anxieties about this vaccination.
All children should be immunised against measles, mumps and rubella for their own protection, but it is also important for this to be done to increase overall immunity in the population, what is called herd immunity.
In view of this, we advise parents who take up the separate vaccines that their children finish the full course of vaccinations. We will ask that a consent form is signed to this effect at the first consultation.
 
Mumps vaccine has not been available since 2012- we understand this is due to a Government decision that this vaccine should not be manufactured nor imported into the UK.
 
The vaccines are manufactured in the United States, Switzerland and India. All the vaccines are endorsed by the World Health Organisation and imported by UK pharmaceutical suppliers who are licensed to import unlicensed medicines. All are manufactured to the same high quality.
 
Age to start vaccinating with single vaccines.
We advise that vaccination is not started before a child is 13 months old.
 
Interval between vaccinations.
We advise that measles is given first, then rubella and then mumps, with an interval of between 6-12 weeks between vaccinations.
 
 
Booster vaccinations.
In order to provide protection into adulthood, children should receive a booster to measles, mumps and rubella, with the same intervals, from the age of 3. We do not recommend testing a childs immunity before giving a booster as it is traumatic for children to have blood tests and evidence has shown that a booster will provide good protection into adult life.
 
Contra indications to vaccinations
We advise caution in the following circumstances:
Allergy to eggs
Children under 12 months
HIV infection
History of brain injury
We advise against vaccination if: any of the following apply:
Child has a malignant disease
Some blood disorders
Active and untreated tuberculosis
Known impaired immunity
Previous extreme allergic reaction to any of the vaccine components or a known allergy to neomycin
Pregnancy
If child has a fever or is on antibiotics
 
After vaccination
If you have any concerns following vaccination, the Southern Independent Medical Practice can be contacted Monday- Friday between 08:30 and 18:00. It is common for children to have a mild fever following vaccination and this can be treated with an age appropriate dose of paracetamol. Outside these hours, you should contact your own GP or local hospital in severe cases (this would be extremely rare).
 

Single measles vaccination

Local redness or swelling around the site of the injection is common. Fever or a mild rash, or both, may occur 5 to 12 days after giving measles vaccination.

Meningitis B 125.00 125.00
details
print the details of this service
Although vaccines against meningitis C and other germs that cause meningitis have very significantly reduced infections by these organisms, the commonest cause of meningitis is from meningitis B. According to a European surveillance report in 2012, meningitis strain B was responsible for 68% of confirmed meningococcal infections followed by C (17%) and Y (8%) for the period 2008 to 2012.
 
The report shows the UK currently has the highest proportion of reported cases of meningitis B in the EU each year. Currently there are over 1000 cases of meningitis B infection annually in the UK, of whom 10% will die and many others will be left disabled. It most commonly affects young children under the age of 5 and adolescents and young adults between the ages of 15 and 24.
 
The number of cases reported are shown to decrease with age, however, there is a noted rise in teenagers and young adults aged between 15 to 24 years. The routine national immunisation programme currently offers a vaccine to adolescents against meningitis strains A, C, W and Y; however, only babies born since May 2015 currently qualify for the Meningitis B vaccine.
 
Southern Independent Medical Practice is able to offer this important protection. Because of the age groups where meningitis B tends to cause infection we particularly recommend that children, teenagers and young adults are vaccinated.
 
The recommended schedule is:
  • For infants between the ages of 2 and 5 months -3 doses of vaccine at intervals of not less than one month should be given with abooster between 12 and 23 months of age
  • For infants between 6 and 11 months - 2 doses of vaccination are required at intervals of not less than 2 months with a booster dose between 12 and 23 months
  • For children aged 2 to 10 years - 2 doses, 2 months apart
  • For adolescents 11 years of age upwards to adults - 2 doses, one month apart

The HPV (Human papillomavirus) vaccine for cervical cancer and genital warts

Vaccination against cervical cancer and papilloma virus infections
 
Gardasil 1 offers protection against 4 common strains of papilloma virus infection, which have been shown to be the cause of cervical cancer in women and some other anogenital and oral cancers in men and women.
The vaccination programme is given as 2 injections over 6 months for individuals aged from 9 to 13 years of age, which is then thought to provide long term immunity. Those aged from 14 years require a course of 3 injections over a 6 month schedule.
Shingles vaccination 169.00 149.00
details
print the details of this service
We are pleased to say the practice now has supplies of the shingles vaccine .
Any of us who have had chickenpox when younger are at risk of developing shingles later. Although this can be a mild infection, it can be severe and lead to long-term and debilitating post shingles pain which can be very difficult to manage and cause very significant ill health. 
A vaccine has been available in United States, Canada, and Australia since 2006. This vaccine is now available in the UK.
A single dose is all that is required. 
It is particularly recommended for patients over 60, since it is known that the antibody levels resulting from chickenpox infection begin to fall around this age, making us susceptible to shingles. The vaccine works by boosting the levels of these antibodies back to full protective levels.
The vaccine is licensed to be given to any patient over 50.
