Non-NHS travel vaccinations incur a charge and where appropriate VAT will be added. Payment will be required before ordering. Patients should collect a travel form from reception or complete and print the online form below and return it to the practice.
Please allow plenty of time before the intended journey. You will be asked to contact the practice as soon as the nurse has generated the vaccine requirements. We are a licensed Yellow Fever Centre.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
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.
