Vaccinations

Vaccinations play an important part in preventative health treatment against potentially harmful viruses or diseases. West Walk can offer advice on the most appropriate vaccinations for employees or private individuals.

Providing flu vaccinations for your staff can reduce the risk of winter absenteeism, keeping your organisation running at optimum levels in often busy periods.

Cervical cancer vaccination can help to protect many women against the two most common cancer causing types of HPV. For women over 18 who are ineligible for free vaccination but wish to receive it privately, West Walk offers both types of vaccine currently available.

You can also find additional information about cervical cancer and vaccination at here.

All our vaccinations are performed by our own qualified medical and nursing staff and can be given at your place of work or at our health centre in Yate, Bristol.

Our vaccinations include:

  • Flu vaccinations
  • Cervical cancer vaccination
  • Hepatitis B vaccination
  • Sewage workers/other exposed worker vaccinations
  • Travel vaccinations (please see our Travel health page for more details)

Vaccination can only prevent approximately 5% of travel related illnesses so we advise careful preparation and awareness of travel health before your journey, especially if traveling to known hazardous regions.

We recommend that if possible you start any vaccination programme at least six weeks before your dates of departure, or earlier if you already have your travel plans in place.

Factsheets are available on aspects of travel health available from The National Travel Health Network as does the Fit for Travel website provided by NHS Scotland.

We offer the following travel health services:

  • Travel clinic services
  • Fitness to travel assessment
