If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will be required to complete a travel health questionnaire (see below). The Practice Nurse will determine which vaccinations are required. Please allow 3 days after submitting your form then call the Surgery. You will be told which vaccinations are required and be asked to make an appointment.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to submit your forms as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - 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 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.
