If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a form provided by the practice so the nurse can research and assess your requirements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. You will then need to make an appointment with the practice nurse.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to complete this form as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as a number of appointments may 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 latest 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.
