Travel Clinic

If you wish to make an appointment for travel vaccines you must book your appointment 6 weeks before you travel. You will need to come into the surgery to complete the travel questionnaire. Then phone the surgery 3 days later when you will be told which vaccines you require.

All children should be up to date with their immunisations before they have any travel vaccines.

If we cannot accommodate you in our travel clinic, you may have to attend one of the private clinics.

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:

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

It is important to make the 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.
