Important Notice: TRAVEL VACCINES SHORTAGE

Please notice that at present we are experiencing a National shortage of the Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B vaccines.  We advise our patients to book their travel appointments in advance and/or seek advice from alternative Travel Clinics.

For further clarification please enquire at reception.  

This surgery is a recognised Yellow Fever Centre.

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 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.
