Vaccinations

Vaccination is generally considered to be one of the most effective methods of preventing infectious diseases.  

A full range of vaccines to develop your immunity to diseases are available.

As well as a full travel health service, St Joseph’s are also able to provide a number of vaccines for adults focussing on specific areas of health, such as cervical cancer (Gardasil ®), chickenpox, shingles, hepatitis, Meningitis B and Meningitis ACWY vaccinations.

Help protect you and your family against flu and pneumonia. 

Did you know up to 1 in every 100 UK adults develop pneumonia each year 1 with more than 50,000 adults dying of the illness annually? 

Reduce your risk with a vaccination at St Joseph's Hospital.

There may be various pros and cons associated with a given vaccination and you should always speak to a medical practitioner to decide the best course of treatment for your circumstances.  For example, some vaccines have mild side effects.

To ensure the highest standards of care at all times, all our clinical staff maintain anaphylaxis training on a regular basis and are fully equipped to deal with any adverse reactions.

Certain vaccinations require a course of treatment to be effective, which may need to be delivered across a period of weeks.
