If you are travelling abroad and require information regarding vaccinations, please book a telephone consultation with our practice nurse approximately 6-8 weeks prior to travel. The practice nurse will carry out a risk assessment and provide information in relation to the vaccinations needed for the countries being visited. Please note that not all travel vaccinations are provided free of charge on the NHS.
We are also a designated Yellow Fever Centre and therefore can administer the Yellow Fever Vaccine if required. Please note, this vaccine carries a charge. Please ask for further information at time of booking.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
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.
