Stay safe and healthy abroad
If you are travelling abroad you may need to be vaccinated. Please contact your practice and make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss which vaccinations you will need. This will depend on where you are travelling.
It is important to make this initial appointment at least eight weeks before you travel so that the vaccines can be ordered. You will need a second appointment to receive the vaccinations. Your second appointment should be at least two weeks before you travel to allow time for the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription which cost more than the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
