Travel Health

Do you need vaccinations?

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete the travel form below. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. Not all travel immunisation is available on the NHS and depending upon where you are travelling to you may be charged a fee for some injections. There is currently a national problem in obtaining vaccines for travel and we therefore may not be able to provide a complete service.

It is still important to complete the travel form as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel. This will allow the practice nurse to review your application and provide advice on what vaccines are needed and what you may already be covered for.  Also when available these vaccines have to be ordered.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below and on the travel form.

   Africa

   Central America

   Central Asia

   Europe & Russia

   East Asia

   Middle East

   Australasia & Pacific

   North America

   Caribbean

   South America & Antarctica

 

 

Travel Assessment

Please complete the Travel Assessment Form at least 8 weeks before you travel and a practice nurse will contact you to provide advice and book an appointment if required.
