If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to attend the surgery and fill out the required form, the practice nurse will then contact you to attend the clinic for any required vaccinations. The form will ask you to confirm the countries and areas you are travelling to and any activities you will partake in.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to complete the Travel vaccine form as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as an appointment will 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 appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS, if you require any private vaccinations you may need to attend a private clinic, the practice nurse will advise you on this.
