Travel Clinic

 

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required at the below link:

Visit Fitfortravel to find out more information about countries and vaccinations required.

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.

We are a Yellow Fever Registered Vaccination Centre. This service is available for our Patients and non-registered patients. 

At Woodgrange we offer the Yellow Fever vaccine to both registered and non-registered patients.

We charge £55 for this service which is CASH ONLY.

Please note that the £55 is charge is for the certificate and NOT the vaccine.

Once you have been administered with the vaccine it will last forever.

Children over 9 months can get the vaccination.

If you have been booked in to have a Yellow Fever Vaccination then please:

  • Complete the Consent form and bring it with you to the appointment.

(You can print the form or collect one from reception to be completed before your appointment)

  • Ensure you arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time - so staff can check the form and register you on the system
