Travel Vaccinations / Visa Applications
The Practice Nurses are happy to advise you as to the necessary travel vaccinations for foreign travel and to administer them as required. Some vaccinations require a prescription to be prepared in advance or may need a course of injections. Please make arrangements at least 6-8 weeks prior to travel to ensure an adequate period of time to be vaccinated.
We are also a designated Yellow Fever Centre and therefore can administer the Yellow Fever Vaccine if required. Please note, this vaccine carries a charge. Please ask for further information at time of booking.
