Vaccinations

Please check the NHS Vaccination Schedule for up-to-date advice for babies, children, teenagers, adults and older adults

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

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

Shingles

There is a vaccine that helps reduce your risk of getting shingles and reduces the severity of symptoms if you develop the disease. Click here to see if you are eligible.

The practice no longer provides Yellow Fever vaccination. You may wish to approach the National Advice Centre website www.nathnac.org who can give advice on Yellow Fever and where you might obtain vaccinations.

You can find more information on the disease and the vaccine in this leaflet.
