Our practice nurse is available to offer medical advice regarding travel and vaccinations where appropriate. Do plan ahead - don't leave your vaccinations until the last minute. Give details of your proposed journeys to a receptionist about six to eight weeks before you travel and the nurse will give you advice on the vaccinations you need.
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.
Visit Fitfortravel to find out more information about countries and vaccinations required.
It is important to make the initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
