If you are going on holiday and think you may need travel vaccinations then you must contact the surgery as early as possible so that we are able to provide you with everything you need in plenty of time.
Please either complete the Travel Questionnaire below, or come to the surgery to collect the questionnaire for completion.
If you collect the documents, please return the completed documents to the Health Centre for the nurses to research the vaccinations needed for your destination. They will then contact you to arrange an appointment if needed.
Although most travel vaccinations are given free of charge, there are a small number that have to be given privately.
Unfortunately, we do not undertake private travel vaccinations at the surgery therefore we will direct you to other services locally that provide non-NHS vaccines. The nurses will explain all of this to you once they have reviewed your information and will then contact you via telephone.
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the attached Travel Form and return to the practice.
It is important to complete this form as early as possible – at least 6 weeks before you travel – as an appointment may be required to administer NHS provided vaccinations.
Private vaccines cannot be administered at the surgery, however we will be able to provide you with a list of local providers.
Please remember that the vaccines will need to be administered at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow for them to work.
