Did you know that the first few weeks back at school / pre-school / nursery lead to a peak of hospital admissions in asthmatic children? If your child is asthmatic and has a preventer please make sure they use it in the few weeks preceding term to avoid exacerbations.
There has been a rise of Meningitis W cases affecting teenagers. As a result this year we will be offering vaccines if you have an 18th birthday between the 1st Spetember 2014 and 31st August 2015 (Year 13) or will be starting university for the first time up to the age of 25 years. Those in year 13 will be invited when vaccine stocks arrive. If you are starting university this summer please contact the surgery as we have a small advanced supply for this group.
Starting on the 1 September 2015 all infants born on or after the 1 July 2015 will be eligible for the meningococcal B vaccine which will be administered together with the other primary immunisations at 2 months, 4 months and 12 months.
There will also be a catch-up programme for infants born from 1 May 2015 to the 30 June 2015. These infants would be offered the meningococcal B vaccine when they attend for their remaining primary immunisation appointments from 1 September 2015.
Please ensure your child is given Paracetamol 30 minutes before the injection is given. See links for more information.
