If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to 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 are required. We will ask you to complete a travel vaccination form for triage by our Practice Nurse before booking any face to face appointments to discuss your requirements
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second 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 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.
There is a fee for certain travel vaccinations not covered by the NHS. Charges are detailed below.
Rabies Course of 3 dose £150.00
Hepatitis B (travel purposes only) Course of 3 dose £60.00
Please be aware that the only free travel vaccinations that we supply are the ones that are recommended by the NHS.
