(Please note that travel vaccinations are only available to patients of Liquorpond Surgery).
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
An initial appointment needs to be made at least 8 weeks before you travel as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
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: If your travel date is less than 8 weeks away, you will be advised to attend a travel clinic for your vaccinations.
Travel Health Questionnaire
