If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete and hand in a Travel Vaccination Form which will be reviewed by the nurse, who will then contact you to give advice and/or to arrange an appointment if necessary. The nurse will need to know which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to do this as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as there may be limited availability of travel appointments with the practice nurse to give the vaccinations. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not all held as stock. Your appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines time to take effect.
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. Please see our charges sheet or ask at reception.
