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
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. Please note there may be a charge for certain vaccinations, please see below list.
NOT ALL TRAVEL VACCINATIONS ARE AVAILABLE FREE ON THE NHS
FREE TRAVEL VACCINATIONS INCLUDE:
- Polio (given as a tetnus, diphtheria and polio booster)
- The first and second dose of Hepatitis A
These are free because they protect against diseases which are considered to represent the greatest risk to public health if they were brought into this country.

You are likely to have to pay for travel vaccinations against:
- Meningococcal maningitis
- Hepatitis B
