Travel Vaccinations - Due to manufacturing issues, we might not be able to offer the vaccine you require for your travels.  We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.global air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 months 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 4 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.  If the surgery is not given sufficient notice of your intention to travel, then we cannot offer a full travel vaccination programme.  You will therefore be required to contact a local travel clinic, which may incur further costs to you.

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 Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America

Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia

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.
