Here at Prescott Surgery we only provide a limited travel vaccination service. The following vaccinations are available:
Travel vaccinations are provided by one of our Practice Nurses. In order to help us offer the appropriate advice please collect a Travel Questionnaire from our Reception team. Please complete it and return it us as least 48 hours before your appointment.
Some travel vaccines or medication (such as malaria medication) are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge. If this is relevant to you then it will be explained to you by the Nurse. This is because not all travel vaccinations and medication are included in the services provided by the NHS.
You can also download the form from the link below:
There is useful advice about what vaccinations are required on the following link http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home.aspx and we recommend that you look this up to find out as much information as possible yourself before you travel.
Plus further information about countries and vaccinations required are on the links below:
If we provide the vaccination that you require, it is important to make your appointment as early as possible - at least 2 weeks before you actually travel to allow the vaccines to work. If you require a vaccination that we are unable to provide we recommend you contact a large branch of Boots or other private Travel Clinic to discuss your requirements.
