Travel Vaccinations

global air travel

YOU MUST ALLOW AS MUCH TIME AS POSSIBLE BEFORE YOU TRAVEL TO HAVE YOUR VACCINATIONS, IF ENOUGH IS NOT ALLOWED WE MAY HAVE TO DIRECT YOU TO THE TRAVEL CLINIC.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a travel questionnaire first, you will then be contacted by a member of staff to make an appointment with the practice nurse to have the required vaccinations done.   Some vaccinations are free on the NHS and some are chargeable and require payment in advance.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America & Antarctica South America & Antarctica
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 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 vaccine.  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 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.


Travel Health Questionnaire

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.  It is better for us and you if you can allow at least 6 weeks, more if possible, book a holiday, check if you need any holiday vaccinations.
