Newport Medical Centre offer a complete range of Vaccinations for Infants, Flu and Cervical Cancer Vaccine.
From 1st August 2008 there is an updated list of recommended vaccines for children. These changes have been recommended by the National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) and will be implemented for children born on or after 1st July 2008. See www.immunisation.ie.
These are available every year from September / October throughout the winter months an are recommended for everyone over 65 years of age and those with chronic illnesses such as chronic chest and heart disease, diabetes and those who are immune compromised.
We no longer provide a vaccine service however we will do private consultations for malaria prescriptions at a charge of €50.
Cervical Cancer Vaccine
This is one of the most important vaccines to be developed recently and we believe it should be available to the widest population of young women. With this in mind we can provide this critical vaccine at a reduced cost. The full course consists of three consecutive injections over a six month period. Our clinical staff will happily answer and queries when booking an appointment.
Hepatitis B Vaccine
Hepatitis B Vaccine is now recommended for all patients from countries where Hepatitis B is common (includes Saharan Africa, Central & Eastern Europe & Asia) and for patients with certain chronic diseases , or for patients in certain occupations. Vaccines are provided free of charge but a consultation charge will apply if you do not have a valid GMS card or if blood tests are required.
