Coronavirus (Covid-19) We are open!We are open as usual for vaccines. We currently have longer intervals between appointments to facilitate social distancing. We only ask that the adult attending wears a face covering in the clinic and that only one adult accompanies each child into the clinic.
Consultations are being offered by telephone or Zoom.
Covid-19 vaccineThere is very limited published information on any of the Covid 19 vaccines, none of which has been tested on children. We are unable therefore to offer any advice regarding the Covid vaccine at present.

Most popular vaccines
Vaccines: making the right choice for your childThe 4th edition of Dr Richard Halvorsen's popular book on children's vaccines is now available. It contains new chapters on all four vaccines that have been added to the UK children's immunisation schedule since the last edition:
Meningitis B, hepatitis B, rotavirus and flu.
All other chapters have been updated.
Asthma & eczema - again
New research from Japan suggests that giving multiple aluminium containing vaccines before 6 months of age is associated with asthma and eczema
Why has there been an increase in cases of mumps and what are my options?
The Men ACWY vaccine
We often recommend a single dose of this vaccine to infants from 6 months of age because of the rise in W strain meningitis.
There is too much aluminium in vaccines
Babies are being exposed to unacceptably high levels of aluminium in national immunisation schedules.
