Please note that the practice does not offer a private travel vaccination service.
What NHS vaccinations are available from our practice?
We can provide a limited range of NHS available vaccinations (which are sometimes recommended for travel) where they are not up to date (subject to availability) - including:
- Heptatitis A
- Diptheria / tetanus / polio
If you are currently registered with our practice and believe that you need one of the above vaccinations - please call to book a 10 minute nurse appointment. You will need to tell us where you plan to visit when you book the appointment.
We are sorry - but out nurses cannot provide:
- advice about what other travel vaccinations you may need
- advice about malaria
- private travel vaccinations
A leaflet is available which provides further advice about how you can find out what vaccinations you have already had and where you can go to for your vaccinations: travel leaflet
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
How to plan your appointments
If you are planning to travel abroad - it is important to make your initial appointment with your chosen travel vaccination provider as below:
- Your initial appointment needs to be at least 8 weeks before you travel. This is because many travel vaccinations may not held in stock and may have to be ordered for you - and you need to have the vaccinations in enough time to allow them to work before your travel date.
- Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Travel clinics in our area can be found by searching on websites.
A limited list of private travel clinics in our local area is listed in our leaflet (as above - though please note that we cannot recommend them and other travel clinics are available).
