If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to complete a travel questionnaire form which can be obtained from the reception as soon as possible. Travel vaccinations need to be administered at least 6 weeks before you travel with the practice nurse.
Patients are reminded that if we cannot offer you an appointment if you are travelling earlier than 6 weeks you will be asked to attend a private travel health clinic.
You may also be asked to make a second appointment for further routine immunisations for travel or in some cases if vaccinations need to be ordered.
Some vaccines do have to be ordered in as they may not be a stocked vaccine at the Surgery.
Also 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.
UNFORTUNATELY CATER STREET SURGERY IS NOT A YELLOW FEVER CENTRE
