Travel Vaccinations

The practice provides an NHS vaccination service for routine scheduled vaccinations. Some vaccinations are only required for travel. The practice is able to offer these on the NHS. Due to current demands, we can only offer the following vaccines:

  • polio (given as a combined diphtheria/tetanus/polio jab)
  • typhoid
  • hepatitis A
  • cholera

These vaccines can be provided for free.

In most instances, travel is planned, and therefore we will only offer routine appointments for travel vaccines. This can mean a wait of 1-2 weeks for an appointment. We reserve more urgent appointments for unwell patients. Please be considerate and plan ahead your need for travel vaccines. Travel vaccines will only be given on a “urgent” basis where a patient can clearly demonstrate that they could not have predicted the need to travel (e.g. unwell relative) and not for holidays. If you need a vaccine urgently for a holiday, we advise you contact one of the private providers below.

For travel to some countries, other vaccines may be required. These can be obtained privately (at a cost).
