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.
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.
