Travel Health

Do you need vaccinations?

 

Our nurses are no longer able to provide face to face or telephone travel advice. If you are unsure about what immunisations you might need before travelling abroad, we suggest you consult a local travel advice centre here or visit the Fit For Travel website. Please arrange an appointment for a travel vaccination at least 6-8 weeks before departure. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks. You can book to see a nurse at 7 day access locations.

Travel Vaccination Prices

We only provide travel immunisations that are free on the NHS.  The NHS vaccines are:  Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio and any combined vaccine that has one of these disease protections in it. Payment for non-NHS services must be made at the first travel appointment.

Non-NHS: Hepatitis B (adult) £25 per dose (usually 3 or 4 required), Rabies £55 per dose (usually 3 required)

The following vaccines can be obtained by private prescription and a charge of £25 is payable to the surgery for each visit to administer. The cost of the vaccine is also payable to the chemist. You will be required to obtain the necessary vaccines and pay the pharmacy separately for these and return them to the practice for administration.

Hepatitis B (child)Meningitis ACWY, Japanese Encephalitis, Tick-borne Encephalitis.

Vaccines must be stored between 2 and 8 degrees in a refrigerator; the ideal way to do this is to hand them in to the practice as soon as possible.

All anti-malaria medications are provided privately. If recommended a private prescription will be issued at a cost of £15 and the cost of the medication will be payable to the pharmacy.

Yellow Fever vaccination is not provided in the surgery but available from specialist travel clinics.
