Child Immunisations

Meningitis B Vaccination Information

Due to the recent press coverage we are getting a lot of calls enquiring about the availability of this vaccination.

Due to contractual arrangements in Primary Care, we cannot charge patients directly for private services and must therefore suggest that you contact private providers such as travel clinics or independent GP's.

We are unable to make specific recommendations, however services are available in Salisbury which can be found using a google search.

Should you go ahead with private vaccinations, please let us know in order to keep your child's medical record up to date

Other Information

If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child’s immunisations, please 
discuss these with your Health Visitor prior to your appointment day.

In the event of an emergency or other extenuating circumstances, the clinic may be cancelled without notice. If this occurs we will offer alternative appointments.

For everybody’s comfort and safety, we would be grateful if you would leave the surgery following your child’s immunisation as space is extremely limited.
