Travel Vaccinations

WE ARE A YELLOW FEVER CENTRE

If you are travelling you may require  vaccinations relating to foreign travel. You will need to complete the Travel Health Questionnaire below and bring to the surgery where you can 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 or anti malarials are required. 

Below are links to general information about countries and vaccinations required. Because travel health is complex and changeable we always advise a face to face consultation with our Practice Nurse. 

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

 

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as further appointments may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations.  These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.  Your final appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are not available on the NHS and incur a charge. Please see the list of charges below.
