Vaccinations and travel health

Travel vaccinations  

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.  

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible at the practice. at least 6-8 weeks before you travel. A second appointment may be required with the practice nurse if necessary. The vaccines may have to be ordered as they may not be in stock due to manufacturing delays.   

Please select the region you are travelling to for further information.
