Travel Vaccinations 

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

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 at least 6 weeks before you travel as an appointment may be required with the practice nurse to receive vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your appointment, if one is required for vaccinations, needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

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. Ryeland Surgery no longer provide private vaccinations including Yellow Fever. You will need to attend a private travel clinic should you need such vaccines.
