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.
You will be told if you have to pay for any of the vaccinations you need and, if so, you will be required to pay for the course in full prior to the first vaccination. In some instances we may need to direct you to other services to provide the 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 this Travel Form and return to the surgery.
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 have to be ordered, as they are not kept in stock. Your appointment also needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
