Travel Vaccinations

We offer a full range of vaccinations for foreign travel. For all advice and information regarding foreign travel please contact the Practice Nurse Secretaries Andrea Wimpenny  or Sarah Abbott on 01924 767 097. It is important that you complete a travel vaccination request form at least 6 weeks before you are due to travel so that immunisation status and requirements can be assessed by one of our Practice Nurses. The minimum time we can accommodate your request is 3 weeks notice for short notice travel we will do our best depending on appointment availability to deal with your request.

You will need to complete a form for each person travelling and it is important that you complete all of the details in full. Please note that NOT ALL travel vaccinations are free of charge for example anyone travelling to Saudi Arabia will require ACWY vaccination and a confirmation certificate of vaccination in order to obtain a visawhich is a requirement of the Saudi Government. The cost of this vaccination and certificate is £ 50.00 per person.

Our practice nurse appointments are booked well in advance, therefore, it is essential that you attend for the appointment booked; and at some times in the year we can only offer specific appointment dates and times.
