If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse. Please complete the online form giving details of your travel.

It is important to make an appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second injections will be required for some vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
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.
