TRAVEL

 

If you are a registered patient and require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, you need to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse to discuss your travel details. Most vaccines need to be given at least 4 weeks before departure, and longer for any courses of vaccines that may be required. The appointment will discuss the length of travel and details of which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting, in order to determine which vaccinations are required, whether you require anti-malarial tablets and any other general travel advice. It is important that you bring details of previous travel/childhood/school immunisations to supplement the records that we have.

Please complete Pre-travel QuestionnaireTravel  the and bring this to your appointment.

 

Before your appointment, you can check which travel vaccinations are recommended for the destination (s) you are going to, at http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home.aspx or http://travelhealthpro.org.uk/country-information/  These sites gives details of whether malaria is present and other diseases/general travel advice.
