If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. 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 - 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.
Common vaccines can be given at the time of the initial appointment. A second appointment may be necessary.
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.
YELLOW FEVER CENTRE
We are now a Yellow Fever Centre and can offer Yellow Fever vaccinations to anyone who requires this. You do not have to be a patient here to receive a Yellow Fever vaccination. Please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment with the nurse. The cost is £59.59 - this is for the vaccination and the certificate, payable in cash only at reception
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, you will need to complete a travel questionnaire when you book your appointment. This will need to be completed and handed in to reception at least 3 days prior to your appointment to allow the nurse time to investigate what vaccinations you need and to order the vaccinations if necessary.
