If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an iniitall telephone appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements or visit the fit for travel website The nurse will then review your vaccination needs with you and you will then be advised to book an appointment for the vaccinations needed. 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 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.
