If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse. Please complete and returning the form detailed below, and collect the practice response after a week, to see what is needed. If vaccinations are need you can then make an appointment with the nurse. Upon presenting for the nurse appointment reception will collect any fees that might be due. The nurse will discuss your travel arrangements, which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting and may adjust your needed vaccinations during that appointment. 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.
