Travel Vaccinations

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:

Travel risk assessment form 1.-Travel-risk-assessment-form-2021.pdf

A travel risk assessment is now mandatory for all travel appointments.

Patients can either print the form or ask at reception for a copy, once completed this must be brought to the appointment for completion by the clinician.

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. Some of these vaccines have to be ordered as they are not always an in 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.
