Travel Vaccinations

global air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an 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. 

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America & Antarctica South America & Antarctica
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 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.

Travel Health Questionnaire

Before going on holiday please ask at Reception to complete a travel questionnaire at least 8 weeks before travelling. This will allow the practice nurse to see what vaccinations you may need.

Returning from the Middle East?


A new disease called MERS has been identified in some countries in the Middle East such as Iraq, Syria Jordan Lebanon, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Yemen, Bahrain and Qatar. The risk to most Travellers is very low, but we advise returning travellers:

to be aware of the symptoms of MERS. The symptoms include FEVER and COUGH, or SHORTNESS OF BREATH.

If you become unwell within 14 days of being in the Middle East, call your Doctor and tell them where you have travelled.
