You may need travel vaccinations and health advice, depending on where you are visiting. To help us advise you on the protection you may need please complete the Travel Health Questionnaire below at least 8 weeks before departure date, if within 8 weeks we may be unable to provide all appointments required for your Travel Vaccinations, and therefore may need to attend a local private clinic and pay their fees.
TRAVEL HEALTH QUESTIONNAIRE:
Travel Health Questionnaire
Each traveller will need to book a 20 minute appointment.
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.
