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.
