Simple Holiday Vaccinations (Other than babies)
By appointment at least six weeks prior to your flight date.If you are backpacking abroad or visiting more than one country then please do not make an appointment at the surgery as the Nurses will be unable to help you- instead you will need to find a specialist travel clinic.Once that clinic has seen you and decided what vaccination you require then you may opt to have the free NHS vaccine back at the surgery- Inform the private clinic and they will tell you the vaccine that can be provided free. You will need to bring your risk assessment form from the specialist clinic with you so that the Nurse can clearly see what vaccine you require- You will need to make an appointment for these vaccinations at least three weeks before you travel.
Please note that many vaccinations are unavailable on the NHS and will be chargeable. In many cases there will also be a private prescription fee to pay.
