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. 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 - if at all possible at least 8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the Practice Nurse after your assessment to actually receive the vaccinations. Vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine, and are costly to keep in stock 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. You will be advised of this during your initial consultation.
