Do you need vaccinations?

Travelling Abroad? We recommend checking the Travel Health Pro website for up to date information on risks and recommended vaccinations.

Our Practice Nurse offers advice and vaccinations for foreign travel. This is strictly on an appointment-only basis.  Where possible we recommend that you plan ahead and seek advice at least one month before travel (two months if taking a prolonged trip or visiting many countries e.g. gap year). The reason for this is that most vaccines take seven to ten days to be fully effective and you may need more than one visit to the surgery to complete your course of injections.

Vaccinations when date of departure is less than 48 hours away
Vaccinations not covered by the NHS. You will be advised to visit a private travel clinic for some vaccines not available on the NHS.

We offer different appointment times throughout the week as late, but if we cannot meet your requirements there are private clinics you can arrange appointments to have this service carried out.

Many of the routine vaccines are readily available and free of charge at the surgery. 
We cannot provide the following vaccines here:
Japanese Encephalitis
Yellow Fever
Hepatitis B unless you also need Hepatitis A and have the combined vaccine.
