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 - 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.
If you feel you need vaccinations for your travel you will need to complete our Travel Questionnaire by clicking on the link below, alternatively you can call into reception. If you wish to return this form to us via email our address is firstname.lastname@example.org ANY FORMS REQUESTED OR RETURNED WITHIN 6 WEEKS OF YOUR FOREIGN TRAVEL WILL RESULT IN YOU BEING DIRECTED TO A PRIVATE TRAVEL CLINIC.

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.
