If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
Vaccines for private travel immunisations are in short supply and therefore we are only able to offer currently the vaccines which are free on the NHS which are Hep A, Typhoid, and Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio but not Meningitis ACWY, Rabies, Yellow Fever and Japanese Encephalitis. We advise you to obtain these from a travel clinic.
Information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:
It is important to make the 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.
You will be required to pay in full your travel vaccines before your appointments. We currently only accept cash or a cheque.
A course of travel vaccines can cost at least £70-£100 so please remember to bring money to the practice when you have your initial consultation.
