Travel Vaccinationsglobal 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.

You must make your initial appointment at least 8 weeks before you travel, this can be a telephone consultation with a nurse. A second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually provide any 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.

If you are unable to provide this much notice then we may not be able to assist and you will need to contact one of the travel clinics detailed below.

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.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
