Fleet Street Clinic is a specialist vaccine clinic in the heart of London.
Our family-friendly clinic has over 20 years of expertise administering vaccines to patients of all ages. We offer the BCG vaccination privately to babies, children and adults. If your child was born in London it is strongly recommended to have your baby vaccinated against TB.
The BCG Vaccine protects against TB, also known as Tuberculosis. BCG is short for Bacillus Calmette-Guerin. A weakened strain of tuberculosis is injected to protect against the infection.
The vaccine should not be given to people who have been vaccinated previously, or who have been exposed to TB previously, which is why a skin test (Mantoux test) is usually undertaken prior to vaccination
Children and adults considered to be at increased risk of exposure to TB will be given a BCG Vaccine as part of an NHS routine vaccination schedule. Check with your NHS GP practice to find out more about local BCG policy, since this may vary.
Children under 6 years:
Can receive the BCG without the need for a prior Mantoux test. BCG appointments are available on Wednesday’s only.
Children over 6 years and adults:
– Require two separate appointments, given over 3 days.
Fleet Street Clinic is an independent healthcare clinic in the heart of London, with over 20 years experience as a specialist vaccination centre. We have a good supply of the BCG vaccine and run a designated BCG clinic for babies and children on Wednesdays each week. All our vaccines are administered by highly qualified nurses or doctors, who will be happy to answer any queries or concerns.
