Immunisations for Foreign Travel

Posted by: marcia - Posted on:

Please be advised that only NHS travel vaccinations (Tetnus, Diptheria, Polio, Hepatitus A, Thyroid) will be given at the surgery. If your travel itinerary requires you to have other vaccinations and advice and/or you are travelling within the next 6 weeks then you may be advised to go to a travel clinic.

If You are Travelling Abroad:

Please complete a travel form available from reception (1 per person) or on this website (surgery newsletters and downloadable forms section).

Return the completed form to the surgery – this needs to be at least 6 weeks before your travel date, so that any vaccinations required can be given in time.

On returning the form to the surgery you will be asked to make a telephone appointment with a practice nurse. The nurse will ring you and discuss your vaccinations and if necessary advise if you need to use the services of a local travel clinic.

To find the nearest travel clinic please go to the website www.bewareofthe bugs.com.

We can provide a print out of any previous vaccinations you may have had at your request – please contact reception.
