Travel Vaccinations - Service not available at the surgery during COVID-19
We are not funded to provide a dedicated travel service, however, we are happy to administer travel vaccinations that are available on the NHS. Written advice must be sought from a professional Travel Adviser before booking an appointment for NHS vaccinations at the practice.
We can provide information on how to access travel services and print off a list of patients previous vaccination which can be presented to a Private travel clinic of your choice or pharmacy who provides Travel immunisation services.
You need to do this at least 8 weeks prior to travel as some immunisations need to be given 4 weeks before travel and we do need adequate time to arrange your vaccination regime and organise suitable appointments.
Please ask the Travel Adviser to provide written confirmation of any NHS vaccination requirements to ensure that we give you everything you require.
If your travel plans are related to employment, then it is advisable that you contact your employers' Occupational Health Service to arrange.
For all travel inquiries we suggest you look at the following excellent website www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
