If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements and discuss which vaccinations may be required ( we need at least 6-8 weeks notice before you need your first vaccination would be due). This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6-8 weeks before you travel.
Further appointments may be required depending on what you need before you travel.
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.
For patients not registered with the practice requesting yellow fever vaccination there is a £20.00 consultation fee which is payable before the consultation, we require at least 48 hours notice to cancel these appointments or there will be a charge made for non attendance. The cost of the injection is £63.50 but the £20.00 consultation fee will not be charged if the injection is administered.
