We now have a dedicated onsite children’s vaccination service in Canary Wharf, Saturdays from 11-2pm.
From experience, I know that many patients have difficulty accessing the NHS services to provide vaccinations for their children. In addition, there are other vaccines that are not available through the NHS. The new Children’s Vaccination Clinic is run by Ms Lare Adebayo, a very experienced paediatric nurse from Great Ormond Street.
For one off vaccines, you can book an appointment directly without a prior consultation. However, for more complicated issues, children with allergies, vaccine schedule planning or vaccines that need to be given by Dr Cottrell, such as Yellow Fever, we require a consultation that will last 30 minutes. During this consultation, we will go through what vaccinations your child has had and discuss any concerns or contra indications to vaccinations or allergies. We will also have time to discuss the appropriateness of more complicated vaccines such as Yellow Fever
The cost of a vaccine consultation for any of the above is £95 and can be done face to face or over the phone. This cost doesn’t include the vaccination costs and is non-refundable, whether you decide to go ahead with the vaccines or not. There is an extra £65 charge for each extra child seen during the same consultation (please advise us beforehand so we can block out enough time)
Once we have ascertained that it is safe to proceed with the vaccinations and have addressed any concerns that you might have, your child will be booked in with the nurse on a Saturday morning. Ms Adebayo has over 10 years’ experience of working with children.
In addition to the usual children’s vaccinations such as measles, mumps (currently out of supply) and rubella, Pneumonia, Hib, Meningitis ACWY and Meningitis B we can also provide regular travel vaccinations such as Tetanus, Rabies and Cholera and Yellow Fever (Dr Cottrell only) to name a few.
