Travel Vaccinations 

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

The practice nurses provide a comprehensive travel service. We provide NHS vaccines for Hepatitis A, typhoid and diptheria, tetanus and polio. We give anti-malaria advice and will direct you to where you can obtain malaria medications.

We ask you to book 6 weeks in advance for travel advice as several appointments may be required, and each family member travelling needs a separate appointment.

Travel which is less than 6 weeks, you may have to go to a private travel clinic.

Process: You will be booked a telephone appointment with a nurse initially to do a risk assessment and give you travel advice, only then if they feel you need any travel vaccines, they will book you an appointment to come in.

Please note: if you are not able to attend the appointment, please cancel and rearrange as soon as possible. If you do not attend the appointment for your travel vaccines, we will not re-book this and you will have to go private travel clinic to get the recommend vaccines.

We do not provide immunisations against Rabies, Yellow fever, or Japanese Encephalitis, but we can advise if we recommend them and these can then be obtained from private travel clinics. Meningitis ACWY for the Haj pilgrimage is NOT provided at this practice - however Meningitis ACWY vaccine for students under the age of 25 is. 

Hepatitis B vaccination for travel or occupational cover is NOT provided. In some circumstances Hepatitis B vaccine can be issued, but must be discussed by a doctor or nurse.
