If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to take a look at the website below and it will help tell you which vaccinations you require. Once you have done this you can then arrange an appointment with the nurse to have this. You may be charged for the vaccination depending on what it is you need. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will 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 second 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.
