Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the Travel Questionnaire before coming to see the nurse (link below.) Then please make an appointment with Nurse Lilyma Thapa or Nurse Margaret Harries.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive some of the vaccinations. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they may not be a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Costs: 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. Free vaccines on the NHS include the hepatitis A vaccine, the typhoid vaccine and the cholera vaccine. Other travel vaccines, such as yellow fever vaccination, are only available privately.
