Walk in service
Don't let chickenpox get the better of your or your loved ones. Here at Egerton Pharmacy we can vaccinate against the varicella zoster virus which causes chickenpox. Chickenpox is a common, usually mild, virus spread easily when in close contact with someone with the infection. Although extremely common with children, anyone can be at risk so it's best to be covered.
The vaccination is administered in two doses, 4-8 weeks apart depending on the brand used. There are currently 2 chickenpox vaccine brands available, VARIVAX and VARILRIX. Only £60 per dose.
The chickenpox vaccine is not part of the routine childhood vaccination schedule but is suitable from the age of 9 months.
HPV Vaccine - Gardasil-9 Vaccine
Vaccinate against Human Papillomavirus (HPV) here today at Egerton Pharmacy.
HPV is the name of a very common group of viruses. They do not cause any problems in most people, but some types can cause genital warts or cancer.
You can get HPV from:
any skin-to-skin contact of the genital area
vaginal, anal or oral sex
sharing intimate toys
You do not need to have penetrative sex. HPV has no symptoms, so you may not know if you have it.
The vaccination is available to individuals from the age of 9 years old, with valid consent from the patient, parent, guardian or person with parental responsibility.
Frequency of vaccination is age dependent. If you are 9 to and including 14 years, a 2-dose schedule is needed (the second dose given between 5 and 13 months after the first dose). If you are from 15 years and older, 3-dose schedule is needed at 0, 1, 6 months.
The brand of HPV vaccine available at Egerton Pharmacy is Gardasil-9 and costs £155 per dose.
