Travel Health and Immunisations

We may need to know about your travel itinerary and any significant aspects of your health in the past before you attend your Travel Appointment and possibly perform a risk assessment before deciding which vaccines are recommended and the advice that will best address your needs. For this reason, the appointment could take 20 minutes or even a little longer. We plan to give you the necessary injections within the appointment time to save you having to come back.

Many people are taking long haul holidays requiring complicated courses of vaccines. To assist you in these requirements we stock a large amount of travel related health promotion material, and have links to travel related websites below.

Travel Immunisations & Advice

Our Practice Nurses are available for Travel Advice and Immunisations. An appointment should be made at least 4 to 6 weeks prior to travel.
