If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete our travel health questionnaire (see below). This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are planning to visit to determine what vaccinations are required. Please send your completed questionnaire to the surgery and we will arrange for one of our nurses to contact you
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important you send in your questionnaire 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 vaccine 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.

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form and return it to the surgery.
