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 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. 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.
Thevaccines we offer are:-
- HepatitisB (£75.00 for the full course, to be paidupfront)
The nurse will check your records to make sure that you are up to date with Measles, Mumps and Rubellaand Diphtheria Tetanus and Polio.
If youneed any other vaccines for your trip, (e.g. Yellow Fever, Meningitis ACWY,Rabies, T.B.) you will need to make an appointment with the School of tropical medicine, PembrokePlace, Liverpool, Telephone number 0151 705 3100.
The nurse will advise you on Malaria prophylaxis. If you need a private prescription for yourmalaria tablets there will be a charge of £15 paid on receipt of theprescription.
