If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you are required to complete and return one of our travel questionnaires (see questionnaire attached below). The questionnaire will ask questions about what countries and areas within countries that you will be visiting as this will determine what vaccinations are required. Once you have completed the travel questionnaire you should return it to the practice and the receptionist will allocate you a travel telephone appointment on a Monday. The travel nurse will telephone you between 5pm - 6pm on the Monday of your telephone travel appointment to discuss what/if any travel vaccinations are recommended.
If vaccinations are required the travel nurse will then book the travel vaccination administration appointments for you. It is important that you give us at least 8 weeks notice before you travel to allow time for a travel telephone appointment as they can get booked up and then time for the practice nurse to actually administer the vaccinations. These vaccinations have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your vaccine administration appointment needs to be at least 4 weeks prior to travel for it to take effect.
