Flu Vaccination

An influenza vaccination is particularly recommended for patients with heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes and residents of nursing and rest homes.

Please contact the reception staff in September for details of the vaccination dates and to make an appointment. If you are unable to attend the surgery, a home visit will be arranged to undertake this facility.

Travel Vaccinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to seek advice with a travel vaccination clinic. If they advise any vaccinations they should provide you with the necessary paperwork confirming this.

If you wish us to perform the vaccination you will need to make an appointment with the practice nurse, and provide the paperwork for the vaccination/s required two weeks prior to the appointment in case we need to order the vaccination.  To ensure that you have the necessary vaccinations please book the appointment with the nurse at least 6-8 weeks before your date of travel.  This will allow the practice nurse enough time to prepare the appropriate course of vaccinations.

The travel vaccines that are provided free on the NHS are:

  • Hepatitis A (including when combined with Typhoid or Hepatitis B)
  • Typhoid
  • Tetanus, Diptheria & Polio combined vaccine
  • Cholera

If you require other vaccinations you will need to contact a private travel clinic, for travel vaccine advice you can visit NaTHNaC
