If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a travel questionnaire and hand this in at reception, the nurse will then check if you need any vaccinations. If you require any we will call you to arrange an appointment with the practice nurse.
We ask that you do this as soon as possible so that we can ensure you get the appointment with the nurse as the nurse clinics do get very busy and we may struggle at short notice.
You can download the questionnaire at the bottom of this link.
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 maybe required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Some 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 vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
