Travel Vaccinations

If you are travelling and think you may need vaccinations, please visit https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/.

Using their advice, please decide which vaccinations you wish to have.

You will then need to book a 20 minute appointment with our practice nurse. They will be able to give you more travel advice and the vaccinations which are available for free on the NHS.

For any vaccinations that are not available on the NHS, you will need to visit the travel clinic through www.travelhealthclinic.co.uk to receive them, and they will be chargeable.

Please leave plenty of time between your appointment and when you travel.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment 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 on the links below: 

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 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.
