Travel Vaccinations

The following travel vaccines are available free on the NHS

  • Polio (given as a combined diphtheria/tetanus/polio jab)
  • Typhoid
  • Hepatitis A
  • Cholera

These vaccines are free because they protect against diseases thought to represent the greatest risk to public health if they were brought into the country.

You can visit to find out which vaccines are needed.

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 receive further booster vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment, should you need one,  needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

We do not offer the following non-NHS travel vaccines

  • Hepatitis B
  • Japanese encephalitis
  • meningitis vaccines
  • Rabies
  • Tick-borne encephalitis
  • Tuberculosis (TB)
  • Yellow fever

The cost of travel vaccines that are not available on the NHS will vary, depending on the vaccine and number of doses needed. You will need to contact a private travel clinic to have these vaccines.
