Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you are travelling to single European destinations and have at least six weeks notice please arrange a 20 minute appointment for travel advice with the practice nurse at your earliest convenience as often more than one appointment will be needed for vaccinations.  For Multi-destination trips/grand tours please see the practice nurse at least 3 months ahead of your trip.  This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below: 

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These 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.

You can also get travel advice and private immunisations from the following  www.nomadtravel.co.uk
