Travel vaccinations

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to have an appointment with the practice nurse.

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please click on the travel questionnaire below, complete it and return it to the surgery.  We will then contact you to arrange an appointment for any vaccinations that are required

There is useful advice about what vaccinations are required on the following link http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home.aspx and we recommend that you look this up to find out as much information as possible yourself before you travel.

Plus further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Plus some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment or further appointments needs to be at least 2 weeks before you actually travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge, if relevant to you then this will be explained to you by the nurse or receptionist when making the appointment. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
