If you require vaccinations, it is important to arrange an appointment with the Practice Nurse for a consultation prior to having the required vaccinations.  A consultation appointment should be made at least six weeks prior to travel, as a number of doses of the vaccine may be required to ensure that you are fully immunised.

Anti-malarial therapy does not require jabs and consists of taking appropriate oral medication depending on the area to which you are travelling.  Most vaccinations are free, however some are not covered by the NHS and are therefore chargeable.

Please contact the surgery for further details if in doubt.
