Different vaccinations are required depending on where you are visiting. We hold a stock of the most common vaccines. Some however need prescriptions, which you should take to the Pharmacist for collection, and return to us for the vaccination.
If you are planning any international travel please complete a risk assessment form 6 weeks prior to travel. This will allow the practice nurse to advise which vaccines are required and to make the necessary arrangements to have these done.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to contact the Practice Nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to contact the Practice Nurse as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as an 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 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.
