Travel Vaccinations

global air travel

For the foreseeable future we are unable to offer travel vaccine appointments.

Travel vaccine clinics are available at several local pharmacies.


If you already have an  appointment booked before January 2018, please read the information below:

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. 

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible – at least 6 weeks before you travel.  This will give the nurse time to assess your travel plans,  organise any vaccines required and to give appropriate advice.  If a second appointment is required the nurse will discuss this with you and advise of a suitable date & time.

Not all vaccinations are available free of charge on the NHS but the nurse will advise you of any potential costs prior to the vaccine being given.  If you require malaria prophylaxis this will be issued on a private prescription at a cost of £10 each, these will also incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.  This is because some vaccines and malaria tablets are not provided by the NHS and therefore is a chargeable service 

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Central America Central America South America & Antarctica South America & Antarctica
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
