If you're travelling, you can sometimes be hit with nasty health-related surprises abroad, from diarrhoea to hepatitis, malaria or even rabies. Whether you've considered your health risks or not, the reality is that some countries carry a higher risk of certain infectious disease. So please don't be caught out on your trip!
www.travelvaccinewise.co.uk is a website full of useful health related information for anyone planning a trip abroad. Find out about some of the travel related infectious diseases and advice you'll need to help avoid them. There is also a handy travellers' checklist.
If you need any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please 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.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Follow-up appointments will be made as appropriate.
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.
