Pneumonia

Don’t get caught out!  For some patients, catching pneumonia can cause serious or life threatening complications, even if they feel well before hand.

That’s why every autumn, as part of a yearly national campaign, eligible patients are offered a free pneumococcal vaccination as they have a greater risk of serious complications should they catch pneumonia.

The eligible patient groups include:

  • Babies
  • Adults aged 65 or over
  • Children and adults with certain long-term health conditions, such as a serious heart or kidney condition

We administer Pneumococcal vaccinations within our flu clinics which launch from September 23rd 2017.  Book your appointment, along with your flu vaccination, by simply calling the surgery from September 1st 2017 on 01503 266960 (after 14:30) and remember the sooner you are immunised, the sooner you are protected.

Alternatively, if you decide you do not wish to have the Pneumococcal vaccination this year, please advise the surgery so that we can update your patient records or fill out the electronic decline form below.
