Travel Vaccinations

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.

 

Make Us Aware

Please make sure that you contact the practice as soon as you know you are going on holiday to any of the below destinations. 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.

 

Booking Your Vaccinations

When you call the practice about these vaccinations, our reception team will ask you some information about where you are going to and for how long before going on to pass this information to our clinical team who will review your records and suggest the vaccines that you may need. Using this method, we can ensure that we can fit you in for your vaccinations if they are needed. If vaccinations are recommended for travel,  these will be free to the patient. Some 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.

 Europe & Russia  North America
 Central America  South America
 Caribbean  Africa
 Middle East  Central Asia
