We provide up to date information on requirements for different countries and all the standard travel vaccinations are available. We hold a computer record of all your previous travel vaccinations.
Allow six weeks to complete your vaccinations.
Anti-malarias are not available on the NHS. You can buy Chloroquine and Paludrine cheaply direct from your pharmacy. Mefloquine requires a private prescription from your GP.
Remember to continue anti malarials as directed after your return to the UK.
You will need to ask for a Travel form at reception which will need to be completed before booking your appointment with the practice.
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.
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.
