Please be aware that we cannot provide any information about travel requirements when traveling abroad.
We cannot provide any tests, proof of vaccination status, or letters as proof. These aren’t the official documents needed so won’t be accepted.
The government website gives you all the information you need as to how to obtain what is required. Please refer to the government’s official website as this has the most up to date information www.gov.uk
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to allow at least 6 weeks before you travel, collect the form from reception and return as quickly as possible to us. At this point we will make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. The nurse will then review your vaccination needs before your appointment.
It is important to make the initial appointment as early as possible, as a second appointment may be required. 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 private, so you will have to go to a private travel clinic for these. Please see details below.
All antimalarial tablets are not available on a NHS prescription
