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:
It is important to make this initial telephone appointment with the Practice Nurse as early as possible and complete the attached form at the top of this page - 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.
The surgery provides on the NHS the following vaccines:
Malaria Prophylaxis is not prescribed by the surgery and the local pharmacist will be able to both advise you on this as well as precribe the medication if needed at a cost.
If your travel requires additional vaccinations such as Yellow Fever/Rabies we will advise you to attend a travel clinic and they will be able to advise you of what you need.
