It is important to consider travel vaccinations as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. If you require subsequent/booster treatments to complete a vaccine course, they must be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work. In addition, some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not kept in stock.
If you think you may require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, please visit the NHS Website www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk for information on the areas you are visiting, and to see which vaccinations may be necessary for your trip. Then, please complete our
and give it to Reception. The Practice Nurse will then review the information, and we will then contact you to discuss making an appointment at the Surgery if necessary.
If you are travelling within 4 weeks you will need to visit a travel clinic
Details are listed below, they offer a similar service to us:
Manor Travel Clinic, 99-101 St Peters Street Derby - Tel: 01332 347926
Regent Street Clinic, Regent Street, Nottingham - Tel: 01159 475498
Please note we provide travel advice as a service to our patients. If you do not allow sufficient time for us to assess your needs and administer the vaccines, we may need to send you to an alternative provider.
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.
Due to the cost of travel vaccines we are not able to administer the vaccine until full payment has been made by the patient. You will be asked by the nurse to show your receipt of payment prior to the injection being given.
