Travel Immunisations / Vaccinations
Please make an appointment at least four weeks prior to your holiday to ensure adequate cover. Please let the reception staff know which country you are planning to travel to. Usually we will have all the necessary vaccinations stocked in our surgery and it is our general policy not to charge for this service. However if we do not have it in stock we will provide you with a normal prescription to obtain from a pharmacist. A charge will only be made for certain immunisations and vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS.
Malaria prevention tablets are not covered by the NHS and can be bought directly at a local pharmacist. Alternatively, the Liverpool Tropical School of Medicine provides up-to-date travel advice on their website on: www.lstmed.ac.uk/clinical-services and they have a one stop travel clinic which they will charge for.
Access the Fit for Travel website to find out what vaccinations you need for the destination(s) you are travelling to, you can also get travel health advice.
