If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, initially you need to make a telephone appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
It is important to make this initial telephone appointment as early as possible - at least SIX weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. The link below will take you to the Travel Risk Assessment form, it may help you have the information to hand and WILL BE REQUIRED to be completed and brought with you to the second appointment.

These vaccines may have to be ordered if they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least FOUR weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines 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.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
