Do you need vaccinations?
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.
Select the region you are travelling to find out more.
Where to get your Travel Vaccinations
Please note that we no longer offer Private Travel Vaccinations at the Surgery.
For Travel Vaccines please google 'Travel vaccinations.' These are some of the closest private providers:
- Derbyshire Travel Clinic at Tideswell Pharmacy
- Total Travel, High Lane
- Cheshire Travel Clinic, Hazel Grove, Stockport
Travel Vaccination Prices
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.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required if a course of vaccines is needed. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
