Our Immunisation Department provides a wide variety of mercury-free vaccinations for children and adults to cover everyone for school, business and international travel requirements.
We believe it is important to immunise.
Breakspear Medical only offers mercury-free vaccines because mercury is the second most toxic heavy metal on Earth – second only to uranium – and we believe that it is best to avoid toxic heavy metal exposure whenever possible.
We started providing the alternative to the combined MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine when the triple combined vaccination was first introduced in 1988. (Please note: the single vaccines and the combined MMR vaccine are all mercury-free.)

What is the schedule for childhood vaccines?
Please visit our Immunisations webpage, which contains all the information you need on the vaccinations available at this time.
Why are the vaccinations licensed in other countries and not the UK?
We purchase our vaccines from pharmaceutical suppliers who are licensed to import them. The vaccines are licensed with the equivalent of our Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Authority in their country of origin.
The vaccines must be imported because pharmaceutical companies in the UK are not licensed by the Department of Health to produce the separate vaccines. The vaccines are shipped to us in temperature-controlled containers and stored in our refrigerators, away from light, as specified in the manufacturers’ instructions.
All our vaccines are from reputable companies. Currently we are using manufacturers based in USA, Switzerland and Germany and we are evaluating other highly regarded sources.
