Travel Vaccines

Please ensure you allow adequate time to receive your NHS vaccine course if you are travelling abroad. We would recommend a minimum of 8 weeks prior to travel, to ensure you have adequate cover before travelling.  If you are travelling in under 8 weeks, we strongly advise you to contact a travel clinic as it is unlikely we can accommodate you at such short notice.

 

  • If we have an appointment available to suit your travel dates we will provisionally book the appointment(s) with our practice nurse. One appointment per person.
  • The pre travel vaccination questionnaire is provided to you at the time you book your appointment, and is available either at Reception or via this link

  • Once you have completed the vaccination request form, we shall be able to determine the vaccines you require and if they can be done by our practice nurse here at the surgery, or if you need to attend a travel clinic. Your form will be actioned within 10 working days, and then you will be contacted on your preferred contact number to confirm the outcome.
  •  When you attend the surgery to have the vaccine administered you are required to wait in the waiting room for a further 10 mins afterwards in case of any adverse reaction.
