The following travel vaccines are available free on the NHS . Bredon Hill Surgery are signed up to provide the vaccination (immunisation) services.
The vaccines are:
polio (given as a combined diphtheria/tetanus/polio jab)
These vaccines are free because they protect against diseases thought to represent the greatest risk to public health if they were brought into the country.
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 or print a copy (1 per person)
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.
