Advice on all holiday vaccination is available from the Practice Nurse. Please allow plenty of time before departure to book an appointment in our Travel Clinic.
Patients are responsible for researching which immunisations are advised for the country/ies in question. There will be a charge per injection.
Please note that we are not a yellow fever centre.
Patients requiring malaria prophylaxis only may not require an appointment (but children need to be weighed) - otherwise just present a written request for a private prescription - for which there is a charge.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
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.
