Travel

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.  Information about travel vaccination requirements and other general travel advice can be found on the website travelhealthpro.org.uk

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

Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 8 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.  

It is sensible to make an appointment as soon as you know you will be travelling as we have a limited number of travel appointments available and at popular travel times there may be a delay before we can offer you an appointment.

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.

We are a registered Yellow Fever Centre.

If there are no travel clinic appointments available before you are due to travel, then there are many private travel clinics in Oxford and Reading who can provide both the necessary vaccinations and malaria tablets.

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