Foreign travel vaccinations:
Please make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and which areas within countries you are visiting, to determine your specific requirements
- Please check the NHS Fit For Travel website for detailed, country-specific information
- Please also check the UK Government Foreign Travel Advice website for specific country security information.
Before booking your appointment, please complete the travel vaccination form to determine what vaccinations you will need. You can hand in this printable copy, or ask for one at reception.
It is important to complete the above form as early as possible – at least 6-8 weeks before you travel – as this form will need to be processed, and an appointment will be required with the practice nurse to receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your appointment needs to be at least a month 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
