If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to 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.  There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations.  These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.  Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

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.

Worldwide Shortage of Hepatitis A Vaccination

 

We apologise to any patients requiring the Hepatitis A vaccine for their travels. Currently there are no Hepatitis A vaccinations available.

 

We are in close contact with manufacturers for all brands of the vaccine and will endeavour to purchase supplies when they become available.

 

If you have been advised that your travel plans put you at risk of Hepatitis A, then you may need to seek alternative ways to be vaccinated. If you wish to speak to one of our practice nurses regarding your travel, please make an appointment when we will be happy to discuss your options. Alternatively please contact MASTA on 03301004200 for availability.

 

Thank you for your understanding and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
