If you are a patient at Chiddenbrook Surgery and require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, you will 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. Some travel vaccinations are not provided under the NHS, please see a link to our private vaccines prices below.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least six weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will often be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Your second appointment needs to be at least two 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. Travel Vaccine Prices- updated 1st January 2020.
Please read our Traveler Information handout. If you need to request repeat medication before travelling, please read Prescription Advice for Patients Travelling Abroad.
Please note we are no longer a Yellow Fever Centre.
