It is important to start this process as early as possible - at least 2 months before you travel -some travel schedules can take 6 months to complete. Leaving it late may involve additional doses and cost you more! Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine and some are only available on a private prescription. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS and the full cost must be bourne by the traveller.
We are not able to offer Yellow Fever or BCG at the surgery at present
Some vaccinations and all antimalarials are not covered by the NHS and a charge is payable for these. A charge of £15 for a private prescription to take away will be made. This charge is waived for prescriptions dispensed in our dispensary
There is comprehensive information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below, please check to see if you require vaccinations for your trip
