If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to fill out a travel assessment form (see below) and then the practice nurse will contact you 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:
It is important to fill out and return the travel assessment form as soon as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as an 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.
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.
