Detection Of Vaccine Derived Polio Virus In London Sewage Samples

With the recent detection of the Vaccine Derived Polio Virus in the London sewage system, Public Health England are working to ensure that the public are kept safe and that any risk to the public is contained.

As a part of the response, your GP surgery has been asked to opportunistically check that patients are up to date with their polio-containing vaccines and to catch-up anyone who is un/under vaccinated.

As such, we at the Tilbury Chadwell Group may be contacting our registered patients to get booked in for any missing vaccinations and we encourage you to take up the offer.

In addition, we encourage parents to check their child’s Red Book and contact us if there are any vaccinations missing.
