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.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks 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.

June 2017 Shortage of Hepatitis A and Rabies vaccines
There is a global shortage of Hepatitis A and Rabies vaccines due to manufacturing issues.
Unfortunately the surgery does NOT have any of these vaccines available and is unable to obtain new stock. The problem is ongoing and is expected to continue for many months. Patients are recommended to contact private travel clinics and see if they have these vaccines in stock but will be charged.
