Many people in the UK view tuberculosis as a Victorian disease, but in fact even today, 5000 people a year are affected by TB.
World TB day gives the opportunity to raise awareness of tuberculosis and lead to fewer cases. An easy way to help stop the spread TB is by having a BCG vaccine, which can be given to newborn babies soon after birth.
In some parts of London, the BCG is not readily available on the NHS, in which case you might consider getting the BCG vaccine privately.
BCG Vaccine for Children
At the Fleet Street Clinic in Central London, we have been providing specialist vaccination services for over 20 years.
We run a BCG clinic three times a week for babies and children under the age of 6. Our baby/child BCG clinic runs on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
Why have the BCG Vaccine?
The BCG vaccine protects against tuberculosis. TB is a bacterial infection that affects the lungs in most cases but can affect other parts of the body such as the bones and kidneys. Typical of many bacterial infections, tuberculosis can be spread through long-lasting exposure to an infected person via sneezing or coughing. The BCG vaccine is a proven way to ensure protection against the tuberculosis bacteria.
How much does the BCG Vaccine cost?
The BCG vaccine at the Fleet Street Clinic costs £80 plus our standard nurse appointment fee of £20.Only one visit is required. Vaccines are given by nurses and doctors and all our practitioners are vaccination specialists.
