If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to contact the surgery and book an appointment with one of our practice nurses. This needs to be done at least 8 weeks prior to travel, otherwise we may not be able to accommodate you in time for your full course of vaccinations. If not we will advise you to go to another provider and we will provide you with a pack informing you what you need.
There is further information about countries and the vaccinations required on the link below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 8 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.
