We offer a range of baby and childrens vaccines at private clinics across Liverpool and Chester.

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.

 

What child vaccines do you provide?

We offer a complete range of vaccine services, including immunisations for babies and children, but also travel vaccinations and annual flu jabs for children. Our services include some vaccines that are not currently available as standard to all children on the NHS. Some vaccinations require a course of injections to be effective. 

 

Some of our most commonly taken up childhood vaccinations include the following:

  • Chickenpox

    The chickenpox vaccine contains a small amount of weakened live varicella zoster virus. The vaccine causes your immune system to produce antibodies that will help protect against chickenpox. The chickenpox vaccine in our Liverpool, Wirral and Chester clinics is given as two separate 0.5ml injections, usually into the upper arm.

     

    Vaccine Course:

    • From 12 months of age - 2 doses administered a minimum of 4-6 weeks apart
    • Vaccine Options - Varilrix or Varivax
  • Hepatitis A

    If you need vaccination because you are travelling, a single injection of the vaccine should be given two weeks before you leave, although it can be given up to the day of your departure if necessary.

     

    Vaccine Course:

    • Primary Dose - 2 weeks prior to departure (Protection upto 1 year)
    • Booster Dose - 6-12 months after the 1st dose (Protection upto 20 years)
  • DTaP/IPV

    This is a booster vaccine which is used to give children immunity to diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis and polio. Immunisation against these illnesses is part of a standard vaccination schedule in children. Infanrix IPV is given as a booster to children aged between 15 months and 13 years.

     

    Vaccine Course

    • Booster 1st - 1 dose at 15-20 months of age
    • Booster 2nd - 1 dose between 4-6 years of age
  • Measles, Mumps & Rubella (MMR)

    This is a combination vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella (German measles). It contains live but weakened versions of the three different viruses that cause these diseases. The MMR vaccine works by provoking the body's immune response to these viruses, without actually causing the diseases. 

     

    Vaccine Course:

    • Primary - 1st dose between 13-18 months (MMR Vax Pro or MMR Priorix)
    • Booster - 2nd dose from 3 ½ years onwards (MMR Vax Pro or MMR Priorix)
  • Measles & Rubella Combined Vaccine

    Rubella and Measles can be prevented by a single vaccination which is a safe alternative to the NHS MMR combined vaccine schedule. Two courses of the Measles and Rubella vaccine are required for immunity. 

     

    Vaccine Course:

    • Primary - 1st dose between 13-18 months
    • Booster - 2nd dose from 3 ½ years onwards
