If you are travelling to somewhere where vaccinations are required, you must complete a questionnaire at the surgery. A separate form must be filled in for each additional traveller. The form(s) must be completed 8-10 weeks before you travel. On receipt of the forms, the travel nurse will assess the information you have provided and you will be contacted to discuss your requirements and when the appointment(s) will be.
Vaccines have to be ordered by the surgery as they are not held in stock. Your second appointment will need to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work. You may need to be referred elsewhere for some types of vaccine. You will be informed whether this is necessary when the surgery contacts you.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
