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 note that we require at least 8 weeks notice for any travel vaccinations .
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Please note that the surgery only provides travel vaccinations provided by the NHS. If you require further vaccinations then you will have to go to a private travel clinic. A search on the internet will inform you of the private travel clinic.
