Travel Vaccinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, you will require two separate appointments with one of our Practice Nurses:

1 – An initial appointment to discuss your travel plans;

2 – A second appointment to administer appropriate vaccinations.

Please note that we do not provide any travel vaccinations that are not allowable under our NHS contract as our staff are not insured to provide them. Details of vaccines we can provide are in the FAQs below.

 

If you wish to book a travel vaccination appointment, please contact the surgery.

Appointment will need to be at least 12 weeks before the date of travel.

We have very limited appointments, so please be aware we may not have availability, therefore you would need to contact a Travel Clinic who will be able to advise
