If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse. The countries and areas within these countries that you are visiting determine what vaccinations are required. Some travel vaccinations may incur a charge (please see Private Fees).
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
PLEASE ENSURE THAT ALL COUNTRIES TO BE VISITED ARE INCLUDED ON THE FORM AS SOME COUNTRIES HAVE DIFFERENT REQUIREMENTS.
It is important to make this initial appointment to determine which vaccine is required as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second & possibly further appointments 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 NOT covered for under the NHS and therefore are chargeable (Payment to be made when booking 2nd appointment). Some are ordered on a private prescription, these incur a charge above the normal prescription rate.
PLEASE SEE PRIVATE FEES FOR CHARGES
Not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Please note that requests for letters from the GP outlining prescriptions for travel purposes also carry a charge, as these are NOT covered under the NHS. Please see 'Private Fees'.
