If you are planning to travel outside the UK, you may need to be vaccinated against some of the serious diseases found in other parts of the world.
In the UK, the NHS routine immunisation schedule protects you against a number of diseases but does not cover all of the infectious diseases found overseas.
In order to establish the most appropriate advice and treatment options for you, a full travel health risk assessment needs to be undertaken and we would recommend that you attend a private travel health clinic or pharmacy.
From 1st August 2019, we are only able to offer a travel vaccination service to cover vaccines which are available free of charge on the NHS service.
If you are advised during your health assessment that you need any of the NHS funded vaccinations listed below, please make a routine appointment with the practice nurse at least two weeks (or four weeks with MMR) before you travel.
The vaccinations covered by the NHS are -
- Hepatitis A
- Measles, mumps and rubella (MMR)
"Fitfortravel" and "Travel Health Pro" are websites that provide useful information and specific destination guides.
