UPDATE 24/01/2018 - we have contacted Public Health Department, and the below situation remains the same. We will update our website when we have more information.
- Diphtheria, tetanus and poliomyelitis (Rivaxis) - no longer a stock problem.
There is currently a national shortage of a few vaccines despite our best efforts to get a hold of them including:
- This is offered to all patients as a one-off vaccine over the age of 65, and some patients will receive it depending on their medical history.
- We have prioritised which patients registered at Morningside Medical Practice are the highest risk of this disease, and we apologise that we can't offer this vaccination to everyone. However, we are trying to source this, and will obtain it as soon as possible - we will update our website once we have further stock.
- Hepatitis A
- You may or may not require this vaccine for your travel. If you do need Hepatitis A vaccine for travel, and the practice have no stock at that time, the Practice Nurse will advise you accordingly of your options at the initial telephone consultation.
Please be assured that we want to provide a comprehensive service to patients, and we apologise for this inconvenience, but these are due to circumstances out with our control.
UPDATE 17/01/2018 - we have contacted Public Health Department, and the above situation remains the same. We will update our website when we have more information.
