In general, most vaccinations are available on the NHS.
However, ACWY (for Saudi Arabia) costs £40 including the necessary certificate
ACWY Vaccine for Hajj/Umrah
Why do I need the ACWY Vaccine?
All pilgrims going to hajj or Umrah are now required by the government of Saudi Arabia to have a certificate of vaccination against meningococcal meningitis ACWY. This vaccine should have bee received no more than 3 years and not less than 10 days before arrival in Saudi Arabia.
Why does the Surgery charge?
The vaccine is not available on the NHS. We therefore offer this as a private service and cover our costs for the vaccine itself, the paperwork and nursing time.
What is the Cost?
Bute House Medical Centre has set the charge at £40, including the vaccine and certificate. We ask you to pay in cash before making the appointment. We are aware that there may be other clinics offering to give you the vaccine for less money. You do not have to get the vaccine here and if you would like to go to a private clinic then this in no way affects the other care you will receive at our Practice.
Hepatitis B may be chargeable,(£30 per injection) depending on the reason you are having it:
For Medical Reason Free of Charge
Travel or Occupational Health Chargeable
Please speak to our Nurses to discuss further.
