If you are travelling abroad and require vaccinations you will need to complete a travel risk assessment form and contact the surgery at least two days later to make an appointment for your vaccinations.
Some courses of vaccinations take two or three months to complete so please take this into consideration when planning your journey.
Most travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.

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.
