Travel Vaccination Service

Have you booked to go on holiday? Do you need vaccinations prior to travelling?

To enable us to provide you with the best care prior to travel we would be grateful if you complete the following steps.

  • Contact a recognised Travel Vaccination Service to find out which vaccinations you need prior to travel. General Practice is only able to administer the following vaccinations for free under the NHS: Typhoid, Hepatitis A, Tetanus, Polio, Diptheria or Cholera. For anything else you will need to have these from a Travel Clinic.
  • Complete the Travel Questionnaire (found on website or available at Reception) and give this completed form along with the documentation regarding your vaccinations to the surgery at least 6 weeks prior to your holiday.
  • Once the Nursing Team have reviewed this information and your medical records we will contact you to make the necessary appointment(s) for your vaccinations.

Without this information and the necessary time frames we may not be able to obtain the vaccinations needed/arrange the required appointments.

All vaccinations need to be given at least 2 weeks prior to travel for them to be effective.

For those vaccinations that are not provided free on the NHS, patients should arrange vaccination at a travel clinic provider

Yellow Fever Vaccinations are now available to have at St. Agnes Surgery – please contact them on 01872 553881
