Travel Vaccinations

Need A Yellow Fever Vaccine?

These vaccines last 10 years, so if you know you are due to go on holiday to a area in the world which would require yellow fever immunity why not book your vaccine sooner rather than later. Contact reception at our Danes Dyke branch to arrange your appointment with the practice nurse.

Some travel vaccines are only available as a private service and therefore incur a charge. 

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.  You will have to inform the nurse of the countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.  There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:

Central America Central Americaindia South America

bulgaria Middle Eastpoland Central Asia
china East Asiachina Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - preferably 8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required for further vaccinations.  Even if you are travelling at short notice it is still necessary to make an appointment with the practice nurse to see if any vaccines can be administered, although ideally vaccines should be given at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines time to work.  Some vaccines need to be ordered as they are not kept in stock.

Although some vaccines are available on the NHS most travel vaccines have to be issued and administered as a private service and therefore incur additional charges as below:
