Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

Our practice nurse team offers a travel health advice service to all patients specific to individual travel needs. The travel advice includes recommended vaccinations, malarial advice and prescriptions where necessary. In addition, information about health problems that might occur, specific to destination/type of holiday intended, is discussed.

Vaccinations may require more than one dose to be given prior to travel, and if courses are not completed in advance of departure, effective protection may not be gained. Some vaccines may need three weeks between them, in order to be fully effective once given.  No more than two injections are advisable on the same day where possible.

In some cases we may not be able to offer an appointment prior to departure and we would therefore recommend that advice be sought from other travel clinics. A list of these clinics is available upon request. 

Please complete and return the travel questionnaire (at least 8 weeks prior to travel), then leave at least a week before calling the surgery for your recommended plan (usually requring an appointment with the practice nurse).

Different areas of the world require different malarial medication. You may wish to read the information below prior to making decisions about which medication to take with your healthcare professional.

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.
