If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete and return a travel questionnaire for our practice nurses to assess your travel needs. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
Once you have done this you will be asked to make an appointment with the practice nurse to receive your vaccinations and discuss any relevant travel advcie for your journey.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below.
It is important to complete your travel questionnaire 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 often 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.
