Travel Vaccinations

We can provide most, but not all, of the immunusations required by patients.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a Travel Health Questionnaire (see below), which will inform the Practice Nurse which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

The details of the questionnaire will be assessed by our Practice Nurse who will recommend which vaccinations you require.

We now stock most of the vaccines you may need, ie typhoid, tetanus, polio, diphtheria, hepatitis A, and hepatitis B and we advise you to contact us at least 6 weeks before you are due to travel. An appointment can then be made with our Practice Nurse, once your completed questionnaire has been assessed by the Practice Nurse.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not vaccination for Hepatitis B for occupational purposes. This should be arranged by your employer, with an Occupational Health Department.

Patients travelling to areas where there is a risk of malaria, can obtain a private prescription from the practice for preventative medication.  There will be a charge for the issuing of the private prescritpion and a further charge for the medication will be made by the chemist.
