If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment first with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within those countries you are visiting to determine what vaccinations you will require.
It is important to make this appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel
These vaccines have to be ordered as many of them are not a stock vaccines. The Practice Nurse will book the second appointment.
Please be aware that the practice is no longer a Yellow Fever Centre, vaccines can be arranged privately via external clinics (see links below for two options)
