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
Prior to making an appointment with the nurse It is important that you complete a Travel Questionnaire (see below) - from which our nurse will determine what vaccinations are necessary - do this as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Most travel vaccines are kept in stock. Anti malarial drugs are purchases over the counter from the pharmacy with the exception of 1 type which requires a prescription - this will be a private prescription as drugs for travel abroad are not allowed on the NHS
