Please complete the forms below and make an appointment at least 8 weeks in advance of your holiday to ensure adequate cover.
For long term and/or wide ranging travel you may need to book an appointment around 3 months in advance and you may be required to get some vaccines from specialist clinics.
A charge will be made for certain immunisations and vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS. A list of these charges is held at reception.
You will be asked to complete a form when making an appointment giving details of when you will be travelling, to where and what kind of holiday it is - this needs to be returned to the practice before the appointment to enable the nurse to see what vaccinations are appropriate.
Travel Advice Leaflet
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
You should get information before you travel so that vaccinations can be planned, ideally no later than:
Holidays - at least 8 weeks before you travel
Backpackers and working abroad - 3-6 months before you travel
Your practice or surgery will need to know:
- Departure and return dates
- Countries visiting
- Type of stay (holiday, backpack, occupational etc)
- Female patients - pregnant now or wanting to be
- Vaccines you have had previously
There is a charge for most vaccines and not all may be available so you may be referred to other practices or specialist travel clinics for some vaccines.
