Do you need vaccinations?

Our Nurses can provide comprehensive travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please note some travel vaccines may need to be given at a private travel clinic elsewhere and must be paid for, direct to the provider. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks

Nurses appointments are pre booked in advance. Please ensure you have booked your appointment for at least 6-8 weeks before intended travel. The vaccines provided by the surgery are free however, If you leave it too late to book your appointment, then you may have to obtain your vaccinations privately at a travel clinic and the clinic will charge you for providing the service.

Select the region you are travelling to find out more.

Travel Assessment

We offer a travel advice and immunisation service. If you are travelling abroad please complete and submit the travel form in plenty of time. You must then contact the surgery a week later to check if you require an appointment with the Nurse.

Please note the Nurse will not call you and it is your responsibility to contact the surgery.

New guidance has been issued for the use of the Oxford AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine.

This follows further reviews by the independent regulator, the MHRA, and the Commission for Human Medicines, of a very small number of people in the UK who have developed a rare blood-clotting condition since having the Oxford AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine.

The MHRA and Joint Committee for Vaccinations and Immunisations have emphasised that the risk of this condition is extremely small and that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks for the vast majority of people. They have recommended that:

  • Everyone who has had the AstraZeneca vaccine should still have a second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, irrespective of age, unless they suffered any serious side effects after their first vaccination.
  • People aged 30 and over or who have a health condition that puts them at higher risk of severe Covid-19 disease should still be offered the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine.  The benefits in protecting them against the serious consequences of COVID-19 outweigh any risk of this rare condition.
  • People aged 18-29 who do not have a health condition that puts them at higher risk of severe Covid-19 disease will be offered an alternative Covid-19 vaccine where available.  (This has been recommended as a precaution as people under 30 are at less risk from Covid-19 and not because they are considered to be at particular risk of developing the rare blood clot.)
  • People under 30 can still choose to have the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine if this will mean they can be protected more quickly and they have been made aware of the guidance.
