Travel Vaccinations

If you (registered patient) require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you (registered patient) will need to complete the form available online or come into the practice to pick up a form to complete and hand back in for the attention of a practice nurse. The nurse will ask the reception team to contact the patient and arrange an appointment.

If you are not a registered patient with the Uplands, please contact your own surgery and request information for travel vaccinations.

Please be mindful it is one ten-minute appointment per person.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

 Europe & Russia  North America
 Central America  South America
 Caribbean  Africa
 Middle East  Central Asia
 East Asia  Australasia and Pacific

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.
