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 . The practice nurse will provide General Travel Health Advice and administer vaccinations which are available on the NHS i.e. Tetanus, Diptheria, Polio, Hepatitis A, Typhoid & Cholera. We DO NOT provide private prescriptions for antimalarials or non NHS vaccinations such as Meningitis, Hepatitis B, Yellow Fever, Rabies, Japanese B Encephalitis or Tick Borne Encephalitis. If you think you require these, or if the nurse recommends them , you will be advised to attend on of the specialised travel clinics.
To help us offer the appropriate advice, you must complete the attached travel questionnaire. You should make an appointment for travel advice with the practice nurse and bring along your completed travel questionnaire with you. PLEASE NOTE A QUESTIONNIARE MUST BE COMPLETED FOR EACH MEMBER OF THE FAMILY. EACH MEMBER OF THE FAMILY MUST ATTEND THE TRAVEL ADVICE APOINTMENT WITH THE PRACTICE NURSE.
