If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice travel 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 we require a minimum of 8 weeks notice prior to your travel arrangements.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this appointment as early as possible - at least 8 weeks weeks before you travel. At this appointment, the nures will carry out a full risk assessment and give general travel advice and if required you will receive your vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS so you may have to contact the local chemists for any further vaccinations that you require.
