Traveling outside the UK, you may need to be vaccinated against some of the serious diseases found in other parts of the world.
Vaccinations are available to protect you against many travel-related infections, such as yellow fever, typhoid and hepatitis A.
In the UK, the childhood vaccination programme protects you against a number of diseases such as tetanus, but it does not cover most of the infectious diseases that are found overseas.
Some countries require you to have an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) before you enter.
Not all vaccinations are available free on the NHS, even if they're recommended for travel to a certain area.

It is important to make an appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. An appointment will be required with the practice nurse to receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.
You are required to complete the travel Travel Assessment form before your appointment.
After completing the form please contact the surgery to arrange your appointment with Practice nurse.
If the surgery is unable to offer you an appointment within this time then you will be asked to contact a travel clinic.
We offer the travel health service free of charge, but unfortunately the NHS does not cover the cost of all the treatments you may need. Therefore, for some services you may
need to pay.
Alternatively, you can visit a local private travel vaccination clinic.
