If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please visit the website http://travelhealthpro.org.uk.
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
Once you have determined the vaccinations you require please contact reception at the surgery for further information regarding prescriptions and appointments required.
We recommend look into vaccination requirements 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 have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your vaccination should be administered 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.
