Travel Vaccinations

global air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to leave a message with the practice nurse 6 weeks before you are travelling to discuss your travel arrangements.  This will include discussion about the country/ies and areas within country/ies that you are visiting to determine what and if any vaccinations are required. 

The nurse will then book an appointment, if needed, for you to see a nurse to have the vaccinations done.

**If you are travelling within the next few days or week then the nurse might not be able to provide you with any vaccinations due to the small amount of time before your travel.

You can also visit your local pharmacy who offers travel adviceservice who will give you advice and any vaccinations (if required).

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

Central America Central America South America & Antarctica South America & Antarctica

Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia

It is important to make this initial request as early as possible  - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as an appointment may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations.  These vaccines may have to be ordered as they might not be a vaccine that we currently stock.  Your appointment will be booked for 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.  Some countries require a Yellow Fever Vaccination which will incur a charge of £65 (from 1st April 2016) per person. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
