If you are planning to travel abroad please contact the surgery well in advance of your departure date for advice on an immunisation programme. This should be at least 6-8 weeks before your date of travel.
If you contact the surgery 3 weeks or less before travelling and require immunisations, please note that you will NOT be fully immune to the infections/diseases you are being vaccinated against. Please note there will be a charge for some travel vaccines.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
