We are able to offer a number of vaccinations for travel and many of these are available on the NHS and thus are free. These include tetanus boosters, immunisations against Hepatitis A and Typhoid. Some vaccines though (such as Yellow Fever, Rabies and Japanese Encephalitis) are not available on the NHS and should you need them for a more exotic holiday, such as Cambodia, Vietnam, parts of Africa/Asia, you will be asked to pay for the vaccines prior to booking your appointments.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a Travel Risk Assessment Form and hand this in to reception at least 8 weeks before travelling.
Once we receive this, the nurse will check the information provided and we will then advise you which vaccinations are recommended. We will also then book you an appointment with the nurse.

It is important to make sure we have the completed form at least 8 weeks in advance as the vaccines will need to be ordered and we also need to ensure you are booked in for the vaccinations at least 2 weeks prior to travelling.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
|Europe & Russia||North America|
|Central America||South America|
|Middle East||Central Asia|
|East Asia||Australasia and Pacific|
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.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view).
