Travel Health

Do you need vaccinations?

Our Nurses can provide travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.

Most common vaccines stocks are maintained at the surgeries such as Typhoid, Hep A and Hep B.

The Surgery can only administer Hep A, Typhoid and DTP (Diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis) and Polio under the NHS.

Any other vaccinations (such as Hep B, Japanese Encephalitis or Yellow Fever) required for travel will need to be provided by a private clinic.
