Vaccinations and Immunisations 

Protect yourself and your family

We provide a range of vaccinations and immunisations, including travel vaccines (we do not provide vaccines for yellow fever). The prices below are per dose/vaccine. The doctor fee for consultation and administration is £40.

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) - Gardasil 9 - £160 per dose

Gardasil protects against the human papilloma virus (HPV). It helps protect against genital warts and cervical cancer, which is the most common cancer in women under 35 in the UK. 

HPV has been implicated in various cancers in men - Gardasil can also be used for males seeking vaccination. The schedule is the same as for girls. 

Individuals aged 9 to 14 at time of first injection:

2 doses are required 6-12 months apart

Individuals aged 15 years and older at time of first injection:

3 doses are required - The 2nd dose is given 2 months after the 1st dose. The 3rd dose is given 4 months after the 2nd dose.

Varicella (Chicken Pox) - ​Varivax - £55 per dose

The chickenpox vaccine protects against the varicella zoster virus that causes chickenpox. Chickenpox is a common childhood infection. The disease can be more severe in adults.

The chickenpox vaccine is a live vaccine and contains a small amount of weakened chickenpox-causing virus. The vaccine stimulates your immune system to produce antibodies that will help protect against chickenpox.

From 12 months to 12 years of age:

2 doses are required, at least 1 month apart

From 13 years of age onwards:

2 doses are required, 1-2 months apart

Shingles (Zostavax) - £150 per dose

Shingles is a common painful skin condition which usually occurs in older age.  Some people are left with pain lasting for years after the initial rash has healed. Shingles is fatal for around 1 in 1,000 over-70s who develop it.

The shingles vaccine is given as a single injection into the upper arm. You only need to have the vaccination once and you can have it at any time of the year.

Having the shingles vaccine is expected to reduce your risk of getting shingles. If you are unlucky enough to go on to have the disease despite the vaccine, your symptoms may be milder and the illness shorter.

Zostavax can be given from age 50 and older

Meningitis B - Bexsero - £120 per dose​

Meningococcal group B bacteria is a serious cause of life-threatening infections, including meningitis and blood poisoning, and the leading infectious killer of babies and young children in the UK.

There are 12 known groups of meningococcal bacteria, and group B (MenB) is responsible for about 90% of meningococcal infections in the UK. The MenB vaccine will protect your baby against infection by meningococcal group B bacteria.

Babies given the MenB vaccine are likely to develop fever within the first 24 hours after vaccination. It is important that you give your baby liquid paracetamol following vaccination to reduce the risk of fever.

Infants, 2 months to 5 months:

4 doses are required 

The first three doses are given at monthly intervals. The booster (4th) dose is given age 12-15 months.   

Infants, 6 months to 11 months:

3 doses are required 

The first 2 doses are given 2 months apart. The booster (3rd) dose is given aged 12-24 months (with at least 2 months from the 2nd dose).

Children 12 to 23 months:

3 doses are required

The first 2 doses are given 2 months apart. The booster (3rd) dose is given 12-23 months after the 2nd dose. 

Children 2 to 10 years:

2 doses are required, 2 months apart

The need for a 3rd booster dose is not yet known

From 11 years onwards, including adults:

2 doses are required, 1 month apart

The need for a 3rd booster dose is not yet known 

Meningitis ACWY - £55 per dose

Cases of meningitis and blood poisoning (septicaemia) caused by a highly virulent strain of Men W bacteria have been rising since 2009.

Older teenagers and new university students are at higher risk of infection because many of them mix closely with lots of new people, some of whom may unknowingly carry the meningococcal bacteria at the back of their noses and throats.

The MenACWY vaccine is highly effective in preventing illness caused by the four meningococcal strains, including the highly virulent Men W strain.

If you had a primary course in the UK, you only need one booster dose.

If you have not received vaccination against meningitis in childhood, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Pneumococcal vaccine - Prevenar - £ 75

The pneumococcal vaccine protects against serious and potentially fatal pneumococcal infections. It's also known as the "pneumo jab" or pneumonia vaccine.

Pneumococcal infections are caused by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae and can lead to pneumonia, septicaemia and meningitis. At their worst, they can cause permanent brain damage, or even kill.
