If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete the travel form below and we will contact you to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below or you can visit the fit for travel website for advice and information http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home.aspx
It is important to complete this form as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as an appointment may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines may have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your appointment should be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private basis and these incur a charge for the cost of the vaccine. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
