HPV Vaccination - If any girl from age 12 up to their 18th birthday has missed the HPV vaccination at school we can offer it here at the Cheam GP Centre. The vaccination is a course of two vaccines which are 6 months apart, please ask Reception for more information.
Older girls are no longer eligible for vaccination from the NHS and should contact a Private travel clinic or Private GP if they require the HPV Vaccination.
All young children are offered checks at intervals to check on their development, growth and physical health. A physical examination is carried out by the Doctor at eight weeks. Other developmental checks are carried out by your named Health Visitor who will refer to your GP if there are concerns.
Many childhood diseases have been virtually eradicated in the UK due to the availability of vaccinations. It is very important that all children are fully immunised.
The GP, Practice Nurse or Health Visitor are available to discuss any worries you may have about your child's vaccinations. Red Books supplied by Health Visitors detail the National Programme of childhood immunisations.
