If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements at least 8 weeks before your date of travel. 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
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 8 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. We will endeavour to offer the immunisations as soon as possible but with less than 8 weeks notice and occasional constraints on nurse appointment availability due to demand, if we cannot give them before 2 weeks of travel we will advise going to a private clinic to make sure you receive them before 2 weeks of your travel date.
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
