There’s no point spending hours choosing your swimwear, beach bag and flip-flops if you barely think about the bugs and other health risks that could ruin your holiday.
Almost one in four UK holidaymakers don't get any vaccinations despite travelling to areas that have life-threatening infectious disease.
It’s not worth skipping travel vaccinations. Infectious diseases can make you very sick, spoil your holiday and even kill or cripple you.
Vaccinations protect you against many travel-related infections, such as yellow fever, typhoid and hepatitis A. Use the information on these pages to learn about travel vaccines, which ones you need for your destination, and when and where to get them.
The vaccinations currently available for travellers abroad.
What’s available on the NHS?
Some travel vaccinations are freely available on the NHS. Others are only available privately.
When and where to have your travel jabs
To enable you to access our travel vaccination service you must fill in & complete our Travel Vaccination Questionnaire & return it to the surgery 6 - 8 weeks prior to departure.
Once you have completed & returned the questionnaire please make an appointment to see the Practice Nurse. If less than six weeks notice is given & there are no available appointments prior to your departure date you will be advised to attend a private travel clinic.
