If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to complete a questionnaire with the admin team on the telephone initially or you can complete the template below. We will then review which vaccinations you need. You may need an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
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.
