Travel Vaccinations

In order that we know in advance of your appointment what you will require, we ask you to complete a travel questionnaire with details of where you are travelling.

If you are signed up to SystmOnline, you can complete a questionnaire on there to give us all the information we need.

The questionnaire can be found in the ‘ Further information ‘ & ‘ Travel vaccinations ‘ section at the bottom of this page.

Alternatively, you can pick up a form from reception.

Once we have your information, we will contact you to arrange an appointment with the practice nurse if you need one.

It is best to see the nurse as early as possible

Make sure before you Travel

  • Make an initial appointment at least 6 weeks before you travel – Vaccines need to be ordered in
  • Attend second appointment at least 2 weeks before you travel – allow time for the vaccines to work

If you are travelling at short notice the nurses will try to help you, but if they cannot, they will recommend that you contact a local travel clinic such as one of those listed below. All these charge for all services

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.
