If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need collect and complete a Travel Questionnaire and bring this to the surgery. The practice nurse will then decide which vaccinations you require after checking your medical records.You will need to phone the surgery a week later and then make an appointment with the practice nurse to have your vaccinations. The questionnaire includes 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 complete the questionnaire as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines may 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.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these may 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.
