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. Please complete the travel form and return to the practice, this must be at least 8 weeks prior to departure, if you are not able to provide this amount of time please visit a travel centre to obtain your vaccinations.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to return the form at least 8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may 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.
