Travel Immunisations

Please check www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk for information on the vaccinations you are likely to need for your destination. Please then book a 20 minute appointment with our practice nurse 6-8 weeks before you travel. There may be a charge for some vaccinations. Please note we are not a yellow fever centre, the nearest is Ambrose Avenue Surgery.  Some travel vaccinations/medication are ordered on a private prescription and these will incur a charge. Not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. For more information visit our Travel Room.
