Travel vaccinationsglobal air travel

Our surgery offers a travel clinic as an additional service for patients. These clinics are managed by our practice nurses. Appointments for this service are limited though and need to be made at least 6 weeks in advance of the anticipated travel date.

We are sorry - but if no travel appointment is available or your anticipated travel date is less than 6 weeks away - you will need to organise your travel vaccinations through a travel clinic. Details of clinics providing this service are available on-line.

If you would like to organise your travel vaccinations with our surgery - you need to make 2 appointments with one of our practice nurses:

  •         Appointment 1

An initial appointment is needed with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements (this must be at least 6 weeks before your anticipated date of travel). The appointment is to conduct a travel risk assessment with you - which will look into the countries you plan to visit and the type of activities that you will be taking part in. This is carried out so that your vaccination needs can be determined.

  • Appointment 2

Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel. This appointment is to give you your vaccinations and allow enough time for the vaccines to work.

There is further information about countries and the recommended vaccinations for those countries on the links below

How much will the travel vaccinations cost?

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.
