Travel Vaccinations (Prescription charges will apply)

We do not run a private travel vaccination service; this information is for our registered patients only. Certain travel vaccinations may be available on the NHS.

  • The NHS provides some, but not all, vaccinations for people travelling abroad. Those vaccines which are usually provided free of charge (subject to a prescription charge) by the NHS for travel abroad are:
  • Typhoid
  • Diphtheria, Tetanus and Poliomyelitis
  • Hepatitis A (including when combined with typhoid and hepatitis B)
  • MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella)
  • Cholera

If you are travelling abroad you need to seek advice on vaccinations a minimum of 6 weeks before your date of travel (preferably earlier)

Our Clinicians are experienced in advising on vaccination and malaria requirements for all foreign travel. Please plan to see the nurse well in advance (at least eight weeks) as some schedules will take a number of weeks to complete.

Please note: Some vaccine courses are not covered by the NHS and a charge will be made, the Nurse will advise you in this case. Please complete the form available from reception or download at least eight weeks in advance of your travel. Please note you will need to complete the form for each person travelling.
