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.

In certain circumstances we can also offer some travel advice over the phone 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 surgery- 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.
