Travel Advice Clinic
You don't always need vaccinations to travel abroad. If you do, the recommended vaccines will vary, depending on:
- which country you're visiting and, in some cases, which part of the country,
- the season or time of year when you'll be travelling, for example, the rainy season,
- whether you'll be staying in a rural area or an urban or developed area,
- what you'll be doing during your stay, such as working in or visiting rural areas,
- how long you'll be staying, and
- your age and health.
Get advice well in advance
It's best to get advice about vaccinations at least eight weeks before you're due to travel. If you do need new vaccinations, some jabs need to be given well in advance so that they can work properly.
You also need to make sure your existing vaccinations for the UK are up to date, such as polio and tetanus. If they're not, you can arrange booster jabs.
Our experienced practice nurses can give advice about travel vaccinations. They can also tell you about protecting yourself from malaria.
Appointments may be pre-booked once the travel clinic questionnaire has been completed.
Please ask for a travel clinic questionnaire from reception or download it from this website (see under "Documents") and complete this prior to your appointment.
