PATIENT NOTICE REGARDING TRAVEL VACCINATIONS

 

THERE IS A NATIONAL SHORTAGE OF TRAVEL VACCINES, THEREFORE BEFORE YOU BOOK AN APPOINTMENT PLEASE CHECK WITH RECEPTION STAFF FOR AVAILABILITY

PLEASE BE AWARE CHARGE FOR

HEP B INJECTIONS

COURSE OF 3 - £105 (£35 PER INJECTION)

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 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 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.

PLEASE BE AWARE: When making your appointment, please advise the Receptionist of the countries you will be visiting so she can add this information to your appointment with the nurse Please ensure this form is completed before your appointment. Failure to do so will lead to the appointment being re-arranged.
