Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you think you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This should include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine which vaccinations you need.  Some vaccinations are only available privately, and if so, the practice nurse will advise you to make an appointment with a Travel Clinic.

There is some further information below about countries and vaccinations required when visiting them:

 

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

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines time to work.

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.
