If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to make a 10 minute appointment with Debbie Goodworth, our Practice Nurse, for a travel assessment to determine which vaccinations you require. You may not receive your vaccinations at this appointment as not all vaccines are held in stock and therefore have to be ordered as required. It is advisable to make your appointment at least 8 weeks prior to your departure date. Some diseases require a course of vaccinations which necessitate more than one appointment with the practice nurse.
Most travel vaccinations are not supplied via the NHS. If the nurse has assessed that you require any vaccinations for which there is a charge you will be asked to pay for your vaccines in full. Payment can be made in the form of either cash or card.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
