Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you should collect a travel questionnaire from reception. This should be completed and returned to reception. The Practice Nurse will then check your records and make an entry on the computer as to what vaccinations or anti Malaria treatment you require. You should ring the surgery 3 days after bringing in the form and, where appropriate, make an appointment with the practice nurse for your travel vaccinations. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

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.
