Travel Vaccine Service

Travel Clinic

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 link below:
www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/destinations#europe-russia

It is important to make this appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel.

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.

We are also a registered Yellow Fever Centre
