Travel Vaccinations

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

Our practice nurses are available by appointment to offer medical advice regarding travel and vaccinations where appropriate. When you have completed the Travel Risk Assessment form you will be given an appointment with the nurse who will produce a personalised vaccination schedule for you. Please be aware that there may be a charge for the vaccinations. This can only be confirmed once the nurse has seen your questionnaire and ascertained which vaccinations are required.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the Fit For Travel website.

Do plan ahead - don't leave your vaccinations until the last minute. Please allow at least SIX weeks before you travel.

If you are going abroad at short notice we may not have a suitable appointment to offer you within the required time frame. If this happens you will be require to obtain your vaccines from another provider. Find further information on NHS Choices website.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription (eg Yellow Fever) 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.
