Travel Vaccinations   

Travel Clinics are run at both surgeries. We would advise that you contact us well in advance of your holiday arrangements so that a programmed of vaccinations can be carried out to ensure you have maximum protection whilst abroad. Please download the form at the bottom of the page and hand it to a receptionist so it can be passed to our travel clinic nurse. She will then look at your records and decide whether there are any vaccinations you will need.  This process will take a few days.  Depending on the iminemence of your trip the form will either be sent to you or a receptionist will call you to advise what type of appointment you require.

Although many of the vaccines are provided through the NHS there are some that we need to charge you for that fall outside of the NHS. A full list of charges will be explained to you on request.  We do ask for payment at the time of immunisation.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required is available at www.fitfortravel.scot.nhs.uk or via 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.  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.
