Travel Vaccinations




All patients are required to complete a travel risk assessment form prior to being offered an appointment.

Please complete our online Travel Questionnaire.

You should complete the questionnaire at least 6-8 weeks before your departure date to allow enough time for your Travel appointment. This is to ensure that the vaccinations have good time to take effect. You also may need more than one visit to complete a course of vaccinations, and in some cases you may need more than one appointment to ensure that you are fully advised for your trip.

Once you submit your risk assessment form, you will receive an email or text response from the travel team with further instructions within 5 working days. If we are unable to see you within a suitable timeframe from your travel date, you will be advised on this. If you have not received a response to your inbox within 5 working days of submitting your form, please check your junk/spam folder. If you are unable to find a response, please notify our team.

Our Travel nurse will endeavour to review your risk assessment form ahead of your appointment. This is sometimes not possible due to NHS time constraints. Please note that if you are up to date with the NHS vaccinations that your travel destination requires, the Nurse may contact you ahead of your booked appointment to advise that you do not need your appointment.

Please be advised that patient's contacting us with less than adequate notice of their intention to travel will not be seen at the practice for an appointment and will be advised to contact/attend a private Travel Clinic. You will only be offered a clinic appointment that is a minimum of 14 days prior to your departure date. This is to ensure that any vaccines you need to receive can take effect. Any vaccines received after this time do not allow sufficient time to produce antibodies against diseases from vaccination.

If you need to visit a private Travel Clinic, you can obtain these numbers in the Yellow Pages see link below i.e. type in “travel clinic” then “your area”, to display a list of clinics) charges will apply at these clinics: Yellow Pages


Research Your Travel Destination

We regret that our Nurses are unable to routinely offer travel advice over the phone.

You can check what vaccinations are required or recommended for your travel destination using the below websites:

Please note that our reception team are not clinically trained and will be unable to advise on what vaccinations you may need for your upcoming travel plans. Please consult a private travel clinic should you wish to discuss your upcoming travel plans prior to your booked appointment or if you are unable to be seen in the practice.

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.

Please note: Not all offered travel services at the practice are free of charge.


We provide the following travel vaccinations:

Vaccination Charge per unit
Diptheria/Tetanus/Polio (DTP) Free
Hepatitis A Free
Hepatitis B – Adult dose  £50 per injection
Hepatitis B – Juniour dose £30 per injection
Measles/Mumps/Rubella (MMR) Free
Meningococcal ACWY £65
Polio Certificate £20
Malaria Private Prescription (for children and pregnant women only) £20
Typhoid Free

Some of these vaccinations may require a course to be completed over several weeks.

Since October 2017 Malaria prophylaxis is no longer provided on an NHS prescription. If your trip takes you into a high risk area you can source antimalarials from pharmacies that provide travel services, or from an online travel service. We will only be able to provide prescriptions for antimalarials for children and pregnant women at a charge of £20 for the prescription.

We do NOT Provide the Following Private Travel Vaccinations:

  • Rabies
  • Japanese Encephalitis
  • Tick Borne Encephalitis
  • Yellow Fever vaccine / Yellow Fever certificate (We are no longer a Yellow Fever centre. As such, we do not issue Yellow Fever vaccinations or certificates. If you have previously been given the Yellow Fever vaccine and have proof of this, we would advise that you attend a Yellow Fever centre with your proof to have the certificate re-issued/issued.)

Please note that we are unable to give you advice ahead of time on the vaccinations listed above If your travel destination requires that you have any of the vaccinations listed above, you will need to arrange for this separately via a private travel clinic.


General Travel Advice

We advise that all patients intending to travel please read through our travel advice leaflet which you can obtain from the surgery for comprehensive advice on food and water safety, insect bite prevention, Malaria, first-aid abroad and animal bite care.

If you are going on a multiple destination trip, please bring the full details of all the countries you will be visiting. Many countries have different risks or vaccine requirements.

Please be advised that if you do not attend your travel appointment, you will not be offered another appointment and we will advise that you attend a private travel clinic. Additionally, if you are 10+ minutes late for your booked travel appointment, you will not be seen and you will be advised to go privately.
