We recommend you book your appointment with the nurse at least 6-8 weeks in advance of your foreign travel to enable any necessary vaccination programmes to be completed according to the correct schedule. The nurse can also provide printed, up-to-date healthcare information relating to your area of travel.
THERE MAY BE A CHARGE FOR TRAVEL VACCINES AND ADVICE. Please check with reception.
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.
