For multi-destination travelers, or if a course of vaccinations is required, you may need to attend several times. Please ensure you allow a minimum of 6-8 weeks for vaccinations before you travel. Some travel vaccinations are currently free and others are chargeable as they are a private service. At Northlands Wood Practice we are able to give you Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Tetanus, Diphtheria and Polio vaccinations free of charge. Oral Cholera vaccine is available via NHS prescription (current prescription charge will apply).
Advice on vaccinations and malaria protection for travelers changes frequently - we recommend you look at the specialist travel websites below for current advice and to consider which vaccines you may require/wish to have, dependent on the level of risk.

Once you have researched the vaccinations you require, if you would like Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Polio or oral Cholera vaccinations please complete and return the QUESTIONNAIRE (questionnaires are also available at Reception). You must have completed and returned the travel questionnaire before it is possible to book an appointment. If you are unsure about historic vaccinations, please ask reception to print a summary for you. We will contact you, to then book the appointment once a Practice Nurse has reviewed your information.
