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.
