The nurse has up-to-date information on your health needs abroad, including advice on anti-malarial drugs. She carries out all the necessary vaccinations excluding yellow fever. Please book your appointment well before you travel as you may need to have a series of injections. Some vaccinations carry a charge because the vaccine itself is not supplied free through the NHS and the surgery has to purchase it privately for you. The surgery will provide you with all necessary vaccination certificates.
Information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:
It is important to make the 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 travelto allow the vaccines to work.
