Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to visit a travel clinic such as Boots, Frosts Pharmacy or Superdrug for immunisations and advice. We do not provide private travel services. We do offer those vaccinations that are provided free to NHS patients but will no longer be providing comprehensive advice and recommendations.

Travelling in Europe

If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.

Whether you plan a last minute holiday or have one planned two years ahead, it is worth considering vaccinations and/or malaria tablets that may be recommended for your destination.

Most vaccines take 3 - 4 weeks to become effective so we ask you to book in for travel advice and vaccinations 6 - 8 weeks before departure.

Which vaccines can we provide?

The following travel vaccinations are usually available free on the NHS:

These vaccines are usually free because they protect against diseases thought to represent the greatest risk to public health if they were brought into the country.

TEN Tips for Healthy Travel

  • Seek consultation with a travel medicine specialist at least four weeks before travel
  • Ask about special vaccines that are recommended for specific destinations
  • First aid and medical kit containing regular and special medication for the trip - carry in hand luggage
  • Evacuation and travel insurance to cover health emergencies while abroad

During the Trip

  • Take precautions against malaria when you visit areas at risk. Prevent mosquito bites and take malaria pills as advised
  • Road safety is important - wear safety belts in cars and helmets on bikes and avoid night time driving
  • Abstain from casual sex or practise safe sex with condoms to prevent HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases
  • Verify and consume safe water and food. Have a supply of medicine for self treatment of diarrhoea
  • Excessive sun exposure should be minimised by the use of sunscreen. Sun can be more intensive over water, snow and at altitude
  • Leave animals alone. Animal bites or scratches can transmit rabies. Seek help if bitten

If fever develops during or after a trip, seek competent medical help immediately.
