Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to complete one of our travel forms which you can access here. You need to hand your completed form into the surgery where you will put on our vaccination waiting list. You will be contacted by one of our nurses within 10 days (Please make sure your contact telephone number is correct) to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.  Some vaccines incur a charge, your nurse can advise you.

Please be aware there is a national shortage of travel vaccinations at the moment, therefore you might find the surgery is unable to offer you the vaccination you require. Allow plently of time to check what vaccination you require and in what time scale they need to be given. Private travel clinics also offer travel vaccinations. For more information about up to date requirements please click here.

It is important to make this 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 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.
