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 & Russia||North America|
|Central America||South America & Antarctica|
|Middle East||Central Asia|
|East Asia||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:
