If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse at least 4 weeks before you travel.
Our Travel Clinics are very busy and it is advisable to make arrangements to have your travel vaccinations in good time as last minute appointments are very seldom available. If we cannot offer you a suitable appointment there are alternative travel clinics, details of which can be found through www.masta.org.
Please print and complete the Foreign Travel Form and return to the Practice as soon as possible so that an appointment can be made for you.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because travel vaccination is not included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore is a chargeable service as follows:
|BCG (TB) – not able to give at Surgery||–|
|Japanese encephalitis 2 doses||£167.80|
|Engerix B (adult / under 16 years)|
|4 doses||£87.35 / £71.42|
|3 doses (12 months)||£71.76 / £59.81|
|One dose||£40.59 / £36.60|
|Twinrix (Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B)|
Payment can be by cash, debit card or cheque with a cheque guarantee card at our Dispensary.
