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.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
|Europe & Russia||North America|
|Central America||South America|
|Middle East||Central Asia|
|East Asia||Australasia and Pacific|
Please allow three working days from submission of your request form for the nurses to make an assessment of your needs. It is important to allow plenty of time so that your initial appointment with the nurse can also be at least 6 weeks before you travel, to allow planning of vaccination courses and the ordering in of any vaccines that are not kept in stock, and ideally completing treatments at least two weeks prior to travel.
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.
