It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second 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. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
The practice only provides travel vaccinations that are available on the NHS. Some vaccinations that are advised for travel have to be paid for and patients would need to attend a local private travel clinic if any of these are required. More information about travel vaccinations can be found here.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
Please note: It is recommended that this form is completed 6-8 weeks prior to travelling. This is to ensure our practice nurse has time to review the form and that a suitable appointment time can be given.
If this is handed in with less than 6 weeks to go prior to travelling we cannot guarantee that an appointment will be given.
Travel Health Questionnaire
Travel health questionnaires must be completed at least 8 weeks before travel. Please call into the surgery for a copy of the questionnaire.
