***PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO STAFF CHANGES WE WILL BE LOOKING AT OUR TRAVEL ADVICE SERVICE OVER THE COMING MONTHS - THERE IS CURRENTLY LESS AVAILABILITY FOR ADVICE/VACCINATIONS THAN PREVIOUSLY SO ALLOW MORE TIME THAT YOU HAVE PERHAPS PREVIOUSLY**** (Jan 18)
Travel Clinic If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please make an appointment with Nurse Anne for a risk assessment appointment. She will discuss the countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required and will organise further appointments are required. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below. NOTE Guidance on these links give basic information only, the practice uses the Travax website as recommended by NHS Grampian.
It is important to start immunisations at least 8-10 weeks before you travel - as an appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Please contact us with as much notice as possible. You will be advised if a prescription is required to be collected prior to your 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.
If you do not contact us early enough, you may have to go to a specialist travel centre to have the travel advice and immunisations carried out. If you are also travelling to numerous countries for several months, you would be advised to go to the specialist travel clinic as we are only giving advice on short holidays or trips.
If you receive travel advice from a specialist centre, you must have all the recommended vaccinations done at that centre.
