If you are planning a foreign holiday or business trip this year, please consider us in the Johnstown Medical Centre for advice and and vaccinations before your trip. We have extensive experience in providing advice for safe travel to most of the common and not so common travel destinations. Our service is also very competitively priced when compared to most other service providers around the city both for the cost of the visits and the cost of the vaccines.
The influenza vaccine for the 2015-2016 season is now available. One of the most important health interventions people with pre-existing health complaints and over 65’s can do is get annual Flu vaccination and the Pneumonia vaccine once off. People under 65 and in good health benefit from flu vaccination by avoiding having to take to the bed for a number of days with a severe respiratory illness or having to take time off work.
Administration is free with a medical card or doctor visit card. We encourage our medical card and doctor visit card holders to have their yearly influenza vaccine with us in the Johnstown Medical Centre. Vaccine if easily available Monday to Friday with our Practice Nurse or with your doctor.
Excisions of simple skin lumps and bumps or punch biopsy is available through Dr. O’Leary.
Cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen freezing) is available from our doctors and nurse for a wide range of skin conditions both innocent and precancerous.
