Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a Travel Questionnaire, this will be reviewed by one of our Practice Nurses; a Receptionist will then ring to arrange an appointment with the practice nurse and will outline which vaccines you will need for the countries you are visiting and if there is an additional charge.

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 South America
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 may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Some 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 time 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.

WE ARE A YELLOW FEVER CENTRE.  If you ONLY require this vaccine we can see you as a private patient even if you are not registered here - please speak to a receptionist on 01530 414131 regarding availability and booking.
