We can provide all of the routine childhood vaccinations for your child, along with some optional vaccines that are not usually offered. Some of these vaccines are only available at private clinics in the UK. You can discuss the options with a doctor at the clinic. The doctor will be able to recommend which vaccines are most suitable for your child. The vaccination procedure and any potential side effects will also be explained before your child has any injections.
You may want to consider arranging the following immunisations for your child at our clinic in London:
A triple vaccine that protects against three potentially serious infections:
Although the MMR vaccine has caused some controversy, there is no evidence of any link between this vaccination and autism. All vaccinations carry a small risk of side effects, which will be explained to you before your child has an injection at the clinic in London.
Chicken pox vaccination is not routinely offered to children in the UK, but it is widely used in other countries. Chicken pox remains a very common childhood infection that is recognisable by the red, itchy spots.
Whooping cough is a highly contagious respiratory infection that still causes outbreaks in the UK. The immunisation is included in the routine 6-in-one vaccination, which also help to protect against:
The 4-in-one booster given to preschoolers also protects against whooping cough, diptheria, tetanus and polio. The 3-in-one booster that is given later does not protect against whooping cough, but does provide protection against diptheria, tetanus and polio
A new seasonal flu vaccine is produced every year to protect against the most significant strain that is circulating. Although the vaccine can’t prevent your child from getting influenza, it can reduce the chances. Avoiding the flu can save your child from some uncomfortable symptoms and the risk of potentially serious complications. The seasonal flu vaccine is given as a nasal spray for younger children.
The BCG vaccine protects against certain forms of tuberculosis (TB). It is no longer given routinely in the UK, but you may want to have your child vaccinated if he or she is at higher risk. For example, your child may be more likely to come into contact with the infection if you are often visited by family members from countries where tuberculosis is more common.
Hepatitis B vaccination can be a good idea if your child is at higher risk of coming in contact with this infection, for example because their mother has been infected.
As well as providing private immunisations that may not be available elsewhere in London, we can also offer the usual childhood vaccinations that your child or teenager needs. You should ask us for advice if you aren’t sure which vaccinations your child needs or when to have them. We can also provide advice on overseas travel, including visits to countries that are at higher risk of conditions such as TB. The routine childhood vaccinations we can perform include:
