With effect from 1st March 2017 we will no longer be able to provide non NHS vaccines but will continue to provide the following NHS vaccines:- Diphtheria/Polio/Tetanus-combined injection. Hepatitis A, Typhoid. Only these NHS vaccines will be administered in the surgery
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make an 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.
