To help us offer the appropriate advice, please complete the Travel Questionnaire at least 8 weeks before travel and return to the surgery. If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel a member of our reception team will contact you to arrange a suitable appointment 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.
