We offer a range of baby and children’s vaccines at private clinics across Liverpool, Wirral and Chester. Vaccination is an easy and effective way of preventing serious infectious disease in children and the immunity will generally serve them through their adult life.
Our child vaccination appointments are usually with our GP Dr Ghosh, and sometimes one of our practice nurses. During the vaccination appointment, you will have time to discuss any queries or concerns and the pros and cons associated with a given vaccination.
What are the main vaccinations my child should have?
Most immunisations we receive in our lives are given during childhood. Some are given once, while others require a booster or top-up to increase immunity.
Some immunisations are provided by the NHS as standard and will provide protection against common diseases including polio, measles, mumps, rubella, meningitis C, diphtheria and tetanus, whooping cough to name a few. But there are many other vaccines that are not part of the routine childhood vaccination schedule such as the chickenpox vaccine, and this is where Dr Ghosh can step in.
Why do I need private vaccinations for my child?
We’ve touched upon the fact that there are some vaccines that are not currently available to all children as part of the NHS childhood immunisation programme and you can give yourself extra peace of mind by ensuring your child is protected against these additional diseases.
It is also possible that you think your child may have missed some vaccinations and you want to ensure they are immunised. It is of course best to have vaccines on time, but your child can still catch up on most vaccines if you have missed them.
For some people, the choice of whether to immunise against certain diseases is not always straightforward, especially when there are sometimes some risks involved. On occasions you may not be happy with the information you are being provided by your own GP and wish to get another view from a GP like Dr Ghosh before deciding whether or not to proceed.
