Our practice nurses can offer you up to date advice regarding holiday vaccinations and other travel requirements. We stock a large range of holiday vaccines which can be administered by our trained nurses at the practice. Please ensure you make your appointment in good time, as some vaccinations are required a number of weeks or months in advance of you travelling to your destination.
A fee will be payable for some vaccinations and a full list is available by clicking here.
Where there are charges for your travel vaccinations, you will be asked to pay for these in advance, so please ensure you bring payment with you.
We are a registered Yellow fever centre.
Almost one in four UK holidaymakers don't have any vaccinations before they go away, despite travelling to areas that have life-threatening infectious diseases.
It's not worth skipping travel vaccinations. Infectious diseases can make you very sick and spoil your holiday. We are here to help, so please ensure that you contact us in good time so we can administer the correct vaccines in the correct timescales. .
If you are unable to make an appointment with the surgery at a time convenient for you, there are some travel clinics which offer appointments, including evenings and/or Saturdays.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. 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.
