If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to complete our travel form. This can be done on-line by clicking the link below, or you can come to the surgery and collect a hard copy. Details needed will include which countries and areas within these countries which you are visiting, to determine what vaccinations are required.
When you submit your completed form you will be given an appointment with the Practice Nurse two weeks later. Should you not require any immunisations you will be advised accordingly.
This should be done at least 6 weeks before the intended travel date to allow time for administration and for adequate immunity to develop. Routine vaccines are free of charge but some require a private prescription which will incur a fee. This is because travel vaccination is not included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore can be a chargeable service.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
