If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you firstly need to complete a travel questionnaire, these are available online below or direct from the surgery.
It is important to submit a travel form - at least 8 weeks before travelling, as an appointment with the practice nurse may be necessary to have any vaccinations required. We require one form per person with all specific destinations clearly stated.
Some travel vaccines are not available on the NHS and incur a charge:-
| || |
|Hepatitis A|| |
| Combined Hepatitis A & B|| |
| Typhoid|| |
| Combined Hepatitis A & Typhoid|| |
|Tentanus, Diptheria & Polio as given in the combined TD/PV vaccine|
| Cholera|| |
The nurse will look at the travel form and we will contact you by phone to advise which vaccinations, if any, are required. Your appointment will need to be at least 7-10 days before you travel for the vaccines to take effect.
There is very limited supply of licensed vaccine nationwide. We may ask you to go to a travel clinic if we are unable to obtain the vaccine ourselves.
