travel vaccine questionnaire
Please make sure that you book for your travel vaccinations 6-8 weeks in advance of travelling.
- You will need to fill in a travel health questionnaire before your appointment day so that the nurse has enough information to give you the correct advice.
- You have the option of printing out the form from the top of the page, filing it in and bringing it to front reception or you can collect the form from reception.
- Each person who is travelling must complete a form including children.
- If you have to travel in an emergency we will try and fit you in with the nurse but protection against the various diseases is not guaranteed as vaccination does not come into full effect for 2 weeks.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make your initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations if not given forst time. These vaccines may have to be ordered if 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.
