Do you need vaccinations?
Before you travel, it’s important to find out whether you will need vaccinations for the country you’re visiting. The following websites will help you.
- Gov.uk for specific country travel advice
- EHIC to apply for your free European Health Insurance Card
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.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
Hepatitis A & Typhoid £90.00 per dose
Hepatitis A £50.00
Hepatitis B £40.00 per dose
Full Course (3 doses) £120.00
Hepatitis A & B £70.00
Influenza (Flu) Vaccine £10.00
Meningitis ACWY £50.00
Shingles Vaccine £180.00
Hepatitis B vaccine on the NHS
Hospitals, GP surgeries and sexual health or GUM clinics usually provide the hepatitis B vaccination free of charge for anyone at risk of infection.
GPs are not obliged to provide the hepatitis B vaccine on the NHS if you're not thought to be at risk.
GPs may charge for the hepatitis B vaccine if you want it as a travel vaccine, or they may refer you to a travel clinic so you can get vaccinated privately.
Hep B has 3 to 4 dose/ each dose £40
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.
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.
