If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a travel vaccination questionnarie form. This can be found on the link below or collected within the surgery. You will also need to make an appointment with the practice nurse 4-6 weeks before your travel date.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - 4-6 weeks before you travel - Upon review by a practice nurse if it is decided that no vaccinations are required then you will be contacted and the pre-booked appointment will be cancelled. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your appointment needs to be at least 4 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these 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.
Please Note: We do not administer the Yellow fever vaccine
