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 are a Registered Yellow Fever Centre ; to apply for this vaccine please complete the necessary form . A fee £ 60 is payable for yellow fever vaccination.
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

Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
We also offer a pneumonia vaccination for those who have never had it before.
Even if you feel health, it is important to be vaccinated. Flu is more serious then a heavy cold and if you already have a medical condition it can really knock you about.
For some people, flu can lead to more serious illnesses such as bronchitis and pneumonia.
The vaccine is effective and it is the best precaution you can take against catching the flu. If you do catch the flu, it is less likely to be milder than if you had not been vaccinated. The vaccine will not protect you against every cold virus around in winter but it will give protection against the most serious strains of flu viruses.
The flu vaccination itself CANNOT cause flu and reactions to the injection are rare.
Lockstown practice is no longer a registered Yellow Fever Centre.
