If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you must complete a travel questionnaire. These are available at the surgery reception or by clicking the link below.
Please return the questionnaire to the surgery. The form asks which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
The forms will be assessed and the surgery will contact you to make a nurses appointment to receive the vaccinations. Please do not make any appointments until contacted.
It is important that you return the questionnaire as early as possible – at least 6 weeks before you travel. An appointment will then be required with the practice nurse who will give the vaccinations. These vaccines may have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your vaccination appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
The number of appointments for travel vaccines is limited.
Where there is insufficient time i.e. your intended travel date is less than 6 weeks away or there are no more appointments available, we recommend that you contact a travel clinic, details can be found on the web.
