Travel Vaccinations

flight_and_luggageIf you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, you need to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and, areas within countries, that you are visiting in order to determine which vaccinations are required.

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the form below and hand it into the Surgery. You must allow 7 working days before your appointment as the Practice Nurse needs sufficient time to review your destinations and previous immunisations.

Do not leave it too late!

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - ideally 8 weeks before but at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the Practice Nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock item. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a Private Prescription and these all incur a charge over and above the normal Prescription Charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
