If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a Travel Questionnaire prior to having an appointment with the Practice Nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.This will include which countries and areas that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible at least 10 weeks before you travel. Most vaccines have to be ordered. Most travel vaccines are ordered on a private presciption 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.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS A NATIONAL SHORTAGE FOR REVAXIS (HEP B) YOUR REQUEST OR NEED FOR THIS WILL DONE ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS.
Please refer to the Fit for Travel website www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk
