When travelling abroad it is important to ensure that you are aware if any vaccinations are recommended for the countries you are visiting. To assess what vaccines you require please click here.
Not all vaccines are available on the NHS some have to be purchased privately. Here at Westfield Surgery, we only give NHS travel vaccines, this includes:
- Hepatitis A
- Combined Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B
When you have found out what vaccinations are required if you require any of the above please make an appointment with the Practice Nurse otherwise you will need to contact one of the private travel clinics listed below.
Private travel clinics will provide you with all other non-NHS vaccines you will need. Most private travel clinics charge a consultation fee for each individual’s appointment and this is normally around £20.00. Private travel clinics are provided by:
- Bath Travel and Vaccination Clinic
- Masta Travel Health Clinics
- Nomad Travel Health Clinics
- Boots Pharmacy
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
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.
