Travel Vaccinations

global air travel

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.

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 the 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 may 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.

Please note: If you are booking a last minute break there is a possibility that there will be insufficient time for the surgery to accommodate your travel vaccination requirements. In this case, you may be advised to attend elsewhere:

You can also access travel vaccination at:

Travel Health Questionnaire

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse. Please note that you will need to print the form and bring it with you when you attend surgery as this online questionnaire is not automatically electronically linked to your patient notes.
