Travel Vaccinations

global air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you must inform the receptionist of all the countries you will be travelling to when you book your travel appointment with the nurse. This information is very important to ensue that the nurse can determine exactly what vaccinations are required. 

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the link below which takes you to the Health Protection Agency website we use.

It is important to contact the practice as early as possible  - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as an appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually give the vaccinations.  These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.  Your appointment for the vaccinations to be given needs to be at least 3 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to be effective.

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.
