Travel Advice

You should get information before you travel so that vaccinations can be planned, ideally no later than:

Holidays - at least 8 weeks before you travel
Backpackers and working abroad - 3-6 months before you travel

Your practice or surgery will need to know:

  • Departure and return dates
  • Countries visiting
  • Type of stay (holiday, backpack, occupational etc)
  • Allergies
  • Female patients - pregnant now or wanting to be
  • Vaccines you have had previously

There is a charge for most vaccines and not all may be available so you may be referred to other practices or specialist travel clinics for some vaccines.
