Going abroad on holiday or business?
You may need travel vaccinations, depending on the country you intend to visit.
- Telephone the Health Centre and ask for a travel form (also available to download here) for each person who will be going abroad.
- Complete the form(s) in full and return to the Health Centre. Then make an appointment with the Practice Nurse.
PLEASE ALLOW PLENTY OF TIME!!
Some vaccines need to be given 3 months in advance of travel.
Some vaccines are not kept in stock as they are not often requested. These can be ordered for you on a named basis and kept for your use only.
You will be advised at the first consultation of any costs involved. You may be asked to pay before the vaccines are ordered.
All patients receiving injections and vaccinations are advised to stay at the Health Centre for 20 minutes afterwards - please allow time for this.
