If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make our practice nurse aware of your travel arrangements so that she can look into what is needed. You can do this via the E-consult link on the home page. (E-consult is temporarily disabled, please use the form below instead). Please fill out as much detail regarding your holiday, this will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. Once received into the practice, we will email back to confirm receipt and the information will be forwarded to our nurse for action. She will also respond by email to you with the necessary information regarding any vaccinations needed.
- Please book an appt at least 8 weeks before you’re due to travel as some vaccines need to be given well in advance in order for your body to develop immunity and our clinics are very busy
- Some vaccines require more than 1 dose spread over several weeks or months
- You can find out which vaccinations are needed for the areas you’re travelling to on websites such as ‘Travel Health Pro’ and ‘NHS Fit for Travel’
- Some countries require proof of vaccinations which much be documented on a Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis.
- Even if an ICVP is not required, it’s still a good idea to take a record of your vaccinations with you
- Contact us well in advance to book an appointment
- If you don’t leave enough time to book in, we may not be able to offer you an appt that coincides with your travel plans
- If so, you may wish to consider contacting a vaccination clinic or pharmacy which offers travel healthcare
- Not all travel vaccinations are free on the NHS and we may charge for non-NHS travel vaccines.
- Vaccinations for travel that are available on the NHS include:
- Hepatitis A
- Remember to check the Gov.UK website for up to date Covid travel advice
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to send in this information as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may 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.
This surgery provides travel vaccinations that we are able to give under the NHS. For any private vaccinations that you have to pay for, you may need to seek advice from a private travel service. You can find details of local services online by using an appropriate search engine.
