Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

The Practice offers a full range of travel vaccinations both to our own patients and private patients. 

We are also a designated centre for the administration of yellow fever vaccine.  The cost for this service is £80.00 and can be provided on a private basis only.  A vaccine checklist prior to your yellow fever vaccination appointment should be completed as below.  You will receive a certificate as proof of your vaccination as this is required by some countries to gain entry.

Travel Health Questionnaire

We will respond to your email within 48 hours on practice working days.

The questionnaire asked for information on the countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine your vaccine requirements. Below are links to information on countries and vaccinations if you wish to do your own research.

It is important to make an appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. This appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

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. The cost for your vaccinations will always be agreed before your appointment. 

Travelling in Europe

If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.

Travel Vaccine Shortage

Unfortunately there is a national supply problem with some vaccines recommended for travel to certain destinations, particularly vaccines that protect against hepatitis.  If you are planning a trip abroad please complete our travel health questionnaire.  We can order some vaccines on a per patient basis so please plan ahead and book in time so you can ensure you are protected.
