If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a holiday questionnaire (available from reception) then, if required, make an appointment with the practice nurse to have any vaccinations administered. 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
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel to allow vaccines to work. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.
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 vaccination is included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore is a chargeable service.
