If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse. It is important to make this appointment as early as possible - at least 3 weeks before you travel. Please inform the reception staff where you are travelling to in order to determine vaccinations required. This allows time for the vaccines to be ordered, as they are not a stock vaccine and also ensures that the vaccine has enough time to be effective.
The travel vaccines are ordered on a prescription, normal charges apply.
If malaria prophylaxis is also recommended you may be able to purchase these directly from a pharmacy. If a prescription medication is required, a private prescription will be issued.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
