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. The links below provide further information about the vaccinations required when visiting different geographic areas:
It is important you make your initial appointment as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment with the practice nurse will be required to actually receive the vaccinations. Travel vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
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.
