If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
PLEASE BOOK A TELEPHONE CONSULTATION WITH OUR PRACTICE NURSE AT LEAST 6 WEEKS PRIOR TO TRAVEL.
**Please be aware there may be a charge for this service**
The vaccine against YF has been used for more than 60 years. If you are visiting tropical parts of South America and Africa (see attached leaflet for map) you may need to be vaccinated.
PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to vaccinate against Yellow Fever in Practice.
If you require a Yellow Fever vaccination before you travel, please speak to our reception team who can help refer you to a local pharmacy, who are able to provide this vaccination.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
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.
