Travel Vaccinations


Book: Please complete a Travel Questionnaire and hand in the completed form to reception at least 6 weeks prior to travel. 

Anyone who is travelling within 6 weeks will be advised to attend a Travel Clinic.  We will continue to administer certain vaccinations (i.e. Hepatitis A and Typhoid) that have always been provided free through NHS services for travel purposes. After attending a Travel Clinic any vaccines that are provided on the NHS can be given at the practice.  Please provide written proof from the Travel Clinic before attending the practice for an appointment.

For more complicated travel plans where it is likely that other vaccinations or anti-malarials are required we recommend that you engage with a local travel service. There is a wide variety available in the local area ranging from local chemists to more formal clinics at the Western General Hospital.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required at www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk or https://europa.eu/european-union/life/travel-tourism_en 

A second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to receive the vaccinations as they have to be ordered. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel.

Some travel vaccines 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.
