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.
You will need to complete a Travel Health Questionnaire which can be downloaded using the link below or collect one from our Reception Team.
For more information on the travel vaccinations provided by NHS please click onto this link NHS Choices - Travel Vaccinations There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below.
Please click onto the following links to find out more information on the vaccinations that you will require so that you will be better informed on what vaccination to have, by using the following links Fit for travel Masta Travel Health This will give you the disease risk and vaccination requirements for your journey - along with other useful links to keep you safe. Please bring the information sheets to your appointment with the nurse, as this can ensure a consultation tailored to the needs of your travel.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 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. Vaccines provided at the surgery include
Vaccines not given at the surgery (Rabies, Japanese Encephalitis, Hepatitis B, Yellow Fever, Meningitis C, Tick-borne Encephelitis) can be sourced either at a chemist offering travel services or a private travel clinic. Malaria tablets are not prescribed by the NHS - some are bought over the counter at a chemist privately, some require a private prescription that the surgery would issue, but the chemist or online chemist will charge for them.
Private vaccination clinics in the Loughborough area are:-
