Travel Vaccinations

Arranging your vaccinations

We are only able to provide the NHS Vaccinations recommended for travel.

 

You will need to seek travel advice from another service, often available at pharmacies.

 

Please register for online services to view your vaccination history and take this with you to the Travel Service.

 

If you require any NHS vaccinations please provide the Practice with a list of these vaccinations and a completed risk assessment from your chosen travel service.  We will then book you into the next available appointment with a Practice Nurse.

 

If the next available appointment is not soon enough for your travel needs then you will need to pay for the injections at the Travel Service.

 

You might find visiting the NHS Choices website (www.nhs.uk) helpful.
