  •  Diphtheria, Polio & Tetanus booster

  •  Typhoid


You will usually have to pay for the following vaccinations for overseas travel:

  •  Rabies

  •  Tick-Borne Encephalitis

Vaccination for yellow fever can only be given at an approved Yellow Fever vaccination centre.

If you require any advice or vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. The Nurse would need to know which countries or areas within countries you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.  You don’t always need vaccinations if you’re travelling abroad. It will depend on where and when you’re travelling and what activities you plan to do. There is further information about countries where vaccinations are required on the drop down links below.





It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 4 weeks before you travel. Vaccines need to be given at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow them to be effective.


Most travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.  This is because travel vaccinations are not included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore is a chargeable service.
