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.
We recommend you review the NHS Travel website before coming to an appointment, so you are aware of what vaccinations you might need.
Fit for Travel
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.
Please note, we cannot offer appointments less than 7 days before travel, so please book in well in advance of your trip away.
We CANNOT do emergency vaccinations. If you are within 2 weeks of travel or we are unable to fit you in, we suggest you visit Nomad Travel Clinic in Central Bristol or Silvermans Pharmacy down the road.
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.
