Nurses are NOT available to give travel advice over the telephone.
Some immunisations for travel abroad are not available on the NHS and there will be a charge for these. These are listed in the Travel Clinic Questionnaire located at the bottom of this page.
If you are working abroad you need to access travel advice and immunisations including prescriptions for antimalarials (if required) through your employer’s occupational health scheme or from one of the private clinics listed in the Travel Clinic Questionnaire document at the bottom of the page
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important that the date for your travel appointment is as early as possible - 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.
