If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a Travel Vaccination Questionnaire and submit it to the practice at least 8 weeks before you are due to travel. This form can be found at the bottom of this page or can be collected from our Reception. You will then be contacted to book in for the vaccinations that are available from the surgery. A list of these are below. Your appointment needs to be at least 4 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work
You can find out which vaccinations are necessary or recommended for the areas you'll be visiting on these two websites:
Some countries require you to have an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) before you enter. For example, Saudi Arabia requires proof of vaccination against certain types of meningitis for visitors arriving for the Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages.
Many tropical countries in Africa and South America won't accept travellers from an area where there's yellow fever unless they can prove they've been vaccinated against it.
Once we have received your completed travel form into the practice it will be assessed by one of our nurses and then you will be conacted by one of our receptionists who will book you into the nurse clinic.
Alternatively, you can visit a local private travel vaccination clinic for your UK boosters and other travel vaccinations.
