Travel Vaccinations

We have taken the decision due to being resource stretched to only offer NHS vaccines. If you are travelling abroad you must book your travel appointment at least 6 weeks beforehand. A full travel risk assessment is undertaken and advice given for the given destination along with discussion of all vaccines recommended and malaria chemoprophylaxis.

For complex travel or those with complex medical history this may also include advice on some of the private vaccines. It is your responsibility as the patient to attend a private clinic for any recommended private vaccinations.
The following vaccinations are provided on the NHS as such diseases are highly infectious if brought back to the UK from abroad. It was therefore decided to provide them as a public health need.

For travel, hepatitis A (all doses and in whatever presentation), typhoid, cholera and polio (which is only available combined with tetanus and diphtheria)

Please ensure you complete your travel risk assessment before booking your appointment.
