Travel Vaccinations

If you think you might need vaccinations or anti malaria tablets before you go away you can make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. They can help decide what you need, based on which countries (and areas within countries) you are visiting.  

You can find more information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

You should make any travel-related appointment as soon as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. You will need one appointment to discuss and plan your vaccines and another to receive them. Most travel vaccines have to be specially ordered. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS so you may be charged for this service.
