About the costs

  • As indicated to you on the phone some vaccines can be provided free of charge from your GP so this may be a good place to start your vaccine planning
  • If you cannot see your GP on time we can provide all of the vaccines, the nurse will give you the costs of the vaccines as you go through the consultation
  • You will be asked to pay for any vaccines or other items purchased at each visit. However, if you prefer you can pay in advance for all items
