TB is a serious infection which affects the lungs and sometimes other parts of the body such as the bones, joints and kidneys. It can also cause meningitis.

BCG vaccination is rarely given to anyone over the age of 16 - and never over the age of 35, because it doesn't work very well in adults. It is, however, given to adults aged between 16 and 35 who are at risk of TB through their work, such as some healthcare workers.

Chicken pox prevention.

Leave 6 weeks between MMR and chickenpox vaccines

Chickenpox is a common childhood infection. Usually, it's mild and complications are rare. Almost all children develop immunity to chickenpox after infection, so most only catch it once. The disease can be more severe in adults. A patient may get a mild form of chicken pox within 6 week of vaccine.

Certain groups of people, however, are at greater risk of serious complications from chickenpox. These include:

  • people who have weakened immune systems through illnesses such as HIV, or treatments like chemotherapy
  • pregnant women.
Chickenpox can be very serious for an unborn baby when a pregnant woman catches the infection. It can cause a range of serious birth defects, as well as severe disease in the baby when it is born. Read more about what to do if you catch or are exposed to chicken pox in pregnancy.

Diphtheria is a bacterial disease spread mainly by exhaled water droplets and occasionally through infected skin lesions. It can be fatal if left untreated. Travelers are at risk when mixing closely with the local population in most developing countries. If they are likely to be at risk, travelers should ensure they have had a Diphtheria vaccine within the last 10 years.

The bacteria that causes Tetanus is present in soil worldwide and disease occurs when the bacteria gets into a wound or even small cut. The disease leads to uncontrollable muscle spasms and possibly death. Travelers should ensure they have had a Tetanus vaccine within the last 10 years before they travel.

Polio is a disease of the central nervous system usually spread through contaminated food and water. Many countries have eradicated Polio through vaccination although it still exists in some African and Asian countries and cases continue to occur worldwide.

In 99% of cases, cervical cancer occurs as a result of a history of infection with high-risk types of HPV. Often, infection with the HPV causes no symptoms.

Aimed at individuals with chronic disease and elderly

The flu is a contagious virus spread by coughs and sneezes. Symptoms start suddenly and can be severe, including: fever of 38C (100.4F) or above, tiredness and weakness which may last for several weeks, headache, general aches and pains, dry, chesty cough, blocked or runny nose, sneezing, and sore throat.

Flu can make you feel very exhausted and unwell, meaning that you may need to stay in bed and rest until you feel better.

If otherwise fit and healthy, you may not be eligible for a free NHS flu vaccine. You may, however, still find it a useful option to receive the vaccine privately if you wish to significantly reduce your chances of catching flu, if you work/commute with many people or if you feel you could not afford the time needed to recover.

Shingles (Over 55 years)

Life long protection

Shingles Prevention. Less effective at preventing shingles than preventing post herpetic neuralgia which is debilitating

This is a live vaccine which contains a weakened form of the chickenpox virus. Only one dose is needed to significantly reduce your chances of developing shingles. Even if you do go on to develop shingles at some point later, your symptoms are likely to be milder and the illness shorter.

The shingles vaccination also works very well even in people who have had shingles before as it boosts immunity against further shingles attacks. The vaccine is considered to be very safe with few side effects. Very occasionally people may develop a chickenpox-like illness following the shingles vaccination – this occurs in fewer than 1 in 10,000 people.
