If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a form at reception or download the one below. This will be handed to the practice nurse to check your records to see which vaccines you require. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to complete the form as early as possible as you will need to start the vaccinations at least 6 weeks prior to travel. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
