If 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 to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important you have an appointment with the practice nurse between 6 and 8 weeks before you travel. If you are travelling any earlier than 4 weeks unfortunately we are unable to offer a travel appointment and advise you to go to a local travel clinic. It's important that you contact the surgery in good time for your appointment as the nurses get booked very fast.
Only Hepatitis A and Typhoid are offered on the NHS to our registered patients and all other vaccines will be chargeable, please see Non NHS travel vaccine tab for costs. Also some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.
NB at the moment we are experiencing a national shortage of vaccines so some will not be available. The practice nurse will advise you of these at your appointment.
