Travel Immunisations / Vaccinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete the form below and return it to the surgery. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

It is important to complete this form between 6 and 16 weeks before you travel as any vaccinations required need to be completed at least 2 weeks before you travel. Please do not submit your form more than 16 weeks in advance as travel guidance can change with little notice.

Only the following vaccines are available on the NHS.  You will need to attend a private health clinic for anything else required.
