Travel Vaccinations

Many people choose to travel to exotic places, and the number of different adventure trips are also on the increase. Even if you are travelling to Europe it is advisable to check if you need vaccines and to seek advice that will help you to stay healthy on holiday.  

Ideally you should begin to organise your vaccinations at least 6 – 8 weeks before you leave the UK, particularly if you are travelling further afield. The last vaccination you receive should be at least 2 weeks before you travel.

If you are up-to-date with your vaccinations you will not usually need a further injection of vaccine. However, if you are travelling to an area where there is little or no medical attention then it is always advisable to receive a further injection, particularly if it has been more than 10 years since your final booster.

If you need one of the vaccinations listed below please make an appointment with one of our Practice Nurses. Other travel vaccinations are not provided by the NHS and you will therefore need to find a private provider to give you these vaccinations. Regrettably, due to an increased demand on our services we are no longer able to provide a full travel vaccination service.

What You Need To Do

Research the vaccinations required for the destination that you are travelling to.  

You can use the ‘Fit for Travel‘ website to ascertain which vaccines are recommended, or approach a private provider such as Day Lewis Pharmacy or a MASTA clinic.

Make an appointment with one of our Practice Nurses.

Hepatitis A
Hepatitis B (for travel purposes only)

If you need information or advice about vaccinations not provided free on the NHS you will need to seek this privately.

A MASTA clinic or Day Lewis pharmacy will be able to administer vaccinations not provided by the NHS.
