Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you are planning foreign travel you may need vaccinations. According to which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting will determine what vaccinations are required.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial contact with the surgery as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as an appointment will be required with the nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. The receptionist will be able to provide you with a travel form for you to complete for the doctor. The doctor will then prepare travel advice and prescriptions as necessary according to the information you have provided on the form. There will be a £15.00 fee for the administration and processing of this form.

 These vaccines may have to be ordered by the local pharmacy so allow time for this. You will need to make an appointment in advance for the nurse tohave your vaccinations administered. Your vaccinations should be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow them 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.
