Travel Vaccinations

We recommend you discuss your immunisations at least 8 weeks before date of travel. Our nurse can give up-to-date advice. Non – NHS travel vaccines such as Rabies, Yellow Fever etc will incur cost to patients.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on this link

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.

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.
