Travel Vaccinations 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. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

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.

Travel Health Questionnaire

In order for us to offer the appropriate advice, a travel questionnaire is required to be completed and returned to the practice before we are able to book your appointment we must have received your completed two to three working days before your appointment. Please download and print out the travel questionnaire below, and send it back to the surgery.

Pre Travel Questionnaire

You can also download our practice leaflet below on travel vaccination guidelines and services.
