Travel Immunisations

The following vaccinations are available free on the NHS from our practice.

These vaccines protect against diseases which are considered to be the greatest risk to public health if they were brought into the country.

For other private travel vaccinations you are advised to attend a local private clinic and you will have to pay for these to be administered.

For further information please visit the following website:

 

Please note

Advice and vaccination are given by the Practice Nurse. Please do not ask any of the Receptionists for advice regarding travel vaccines, as they are not medically trained. If you have any queries, you must make a 20 minute appointment with the Practice Nurse. You will be asked to complete a travel questionnaire prior to the appointment, so that the Practice Nurse can check what vaccines you may require. An online version is available below.

We recommend that you have your travel vaccinations administered at least 4 – 6 weeks before your departure date.

Read the latest health advice for the country you're travelling to on the Fit for Travel website, and check the travel safety updates with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.

You may need travel vaccines or, if diseases such as malaria are a risk, you may need to start protecting yourself well in advance.

Prepare a kit of travel health essentials, including sunscreen, painkillers, antiseptic, insect repellent and anti-diarrhoea pills. These will be useful wherever you're going.

Sexual health experts advise taking condoms with you to avoid the risk of buying fake brands, which may be unsafe, when you get there.
