Travel Advice

Travel Vaccinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an telephone consultation with 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 here https://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home

It is important to make this initial telephone consultation as early as possible, at least 6 weeks before you travel because 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.
