If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements, receive advice and the vaccinations required. To establish which vaccinations you require, it is important to know which countries and areas within these countries you are visiting. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make the initial appointment with the nurse as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required to receive additional vaccinations.
Your appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work. If you are travelling at very short notice, try to book an appointment and discuss the circumstances with our nurse.
Most travel vaccines are provided free of charge to our registered patients. These include Hepatitis A and Typhoid vaccinations. For some vaccines we may charge a fee (e.g. Hepatitis B). Malaria prophylaxis is not provided by the NHS and for some anti-malarial drugs we will issue a private prescription and this incurs a charge of £10. The pharmacy will then also charge the full fee for the medication.
