No need for 6 monthly pill checks!

Pill check ups are now available on an annual basis at Newbridge Family Practice. This applies where there are no complications or side effects. Certain medical conditions and new mothers for the first year after the baby will still require 6 monthly check ups. This will save both time and money.

Do you want to prevent your child from getting Chickenpox?

There is a very good vaccine available that is used worldwide. Children must be more than 1 year old to avail of this vaccine. The vaccine consists of two doses, 6 weeks apart and is given into the upper arm or thigh. Rarely children may develop a rash in the first 4 – 6 weeks and if they do so they can be contagious. It is important that they avoid susceptible individuals at this time eg pregnant women and those who are immunosuppressed.

Cost €170 (€85 per dose)
2 children in one family together is €150

Children given Varivax must be patients of the practice and a telephone consultation with the Doctor is necessary before the nurse can administer.
