Pneumo Immunisations

Patients over 65 years of age are eligible for an immunisation to protect against pneumococcal infection which can cause diseases such as pneumonia, septicaemia (blood poisoning) and meningitis. The recommendation is that one dose of the vaccine will give protection for most people. If you have not had this immunisation you can make an appointment to see one of our healthcare assistants to receive this. Patients will automatically be invited close to their 65 birthday.
