If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to collect a travel immunisation questionaire from reception, once this has been filled out return to surgery the Practice Nurse will then look to see if you do require any vaccinations. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
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. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, we will require you to complete a holiday vaccination form, which can be collected from reception or alternative there is a link below which you print out and fill in and drop it in to the surgery so our Practice Nurse Jackie can have a look at it to see which vaccinations you require. Once form is dropped off please allow us 72 hours for the Nurse to have a look at this.
