Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

 

Our nurses offer a full advisory service for those travelling abroad.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to make an appt with the practice nurse. In addition you will need to complete a travel questionnaire (see below) and return this to the surgery 7 working days before your appt.  This questionnaire will need to include which countries and areas within countries you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. Unfortunately if we do not have this information one week prior to your appt you may need to rebook.

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

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

 

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.

 

Travel vaccination form to be handed into reception 7 working days prior to Nurse appt.
