The chicken pox vaccine has been used routinely in the childhood immunisation programme in the United States since 1995 and is an effective prevention against chicken pox. It is given as two separate injections, usually into the upper arm, four to eight weeks apart.
The vaccine can be given to anyone more than 12 months old to prevent the development of Chickenpox in those who haven’t had it and can protect adults who work with children or in a healthcare setting who have never had chickenpox.
We recommend children under six who have not previously had the BCG vaccine can have the BCG vaccine administered here at our beautiful Birmingham clinic by one of our highly trained GPs.
If the child is over the age of six years, they will need a Mantoux test before the vaccine can be administered. If this is negative and your child has not had the vaccine before then they can have the vaccine. If you are an Adult (up to the age of 35) looking to have the BCG vaccine in Birmingham and you do not have a visible BCG scar and are unsure if you are vaccinated, you will need to have a Mantoux test. Once the Mantoux shows up as negative, you can have the vaccine.
The Mantoux test
A risk assessment and scar verification needs to be carried out before the vaccine and, in most circumstances, a Mantoux test will need to be performed. The Mantoux test is the most popular method that screens for TB. It is normally performed prior to giving the BCG vaccination and having the test means you'll need two visits to our clinic to see the GP.
Essentially, part of the protein from the TB bacterium is injected under the skin of the forearm. It usually takes 48-72 hours for a reaction, the arm is then checked and your GP will go through the next steps with you and whether any further investigation is required.
The HPV vaccine protects against several strains of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), which can cause cervical cancer in women, anal and penile cancer in men and genital warts and oral cancers in both sexes. Depending on your age, you will need two to three doses which are typically administered over three to six months. Please bear in mind a vaccination is not a substitute for routine cervical screening.
Hepatitis A vaccinations
If you've never had a Hepatitis A vaccine before, you will need two vaccines 6-12 months apart for lifelong immunity. If you have had it before – depending on how long ago then you may only need another single vaccine for lifelong immunity. Please call us on 0300 247 0121 for more information on our private vaccinations.
