If you are travelling abroad and require travel vaccination, it is important that you book an appointment with the Practice Nurse at least six weeks prior to departure. If you have taken a late booking, we may not be able to undertake your vaccines and you may have to attend a travel clinic.
Vaccines such as Hepatitis A and Typhoid are available on the NHS free of charge if recommended for your country of travel. However, other vaccines such as Rabies, Meningitis, Hepatitis B, Japanese Encephalitis, Tick borne Encephalitis are not available on the NHS. If you require non NHS vaccines we advise that you attend a travel clinic. There is a £20 charge for advice and prescribing of Malaria prophylaxis should you require it.
When booking your appointment, it is important that you advise the Receptionist of the date of your travel, your destination and your accommodation. This information is used by the Practice Nurse to identify your individual travel vaccination requirements.
