If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you should complete a travel risk assessment form and return it to the practice.
Travel risk assessment form (please click on link to open form)
Please ensure you include sufficient information about the places you are intending to visit so the nurse can determine what vaccinations are required.
It is important to return the completed form to the practice as soon as you can as the practice nurse will need time to assess the risks and contact you to advise what vaccinations are required, before an appointment can be made. Please note that not all vaccinations are available free of charge on the NHS but you will be advised of any potential costs prior to the vaccine being given.
You should ideally allow 6 weeks before you travel to allow appropriate time for the vaccines to be ordered and for you to receive the vaccines in sufficient time, before you travel. There are some vaccinations, such as Japanese Enchapilitis that need to be given over the course of a month so it is important to make your appointment as early as possible It also takes 2 weeks for antibodies to provide immunity.
Once you have returned the form the nurse will contact you by telephone within 2-3 weeks.
Please be advised that the practice can only accept cash as payment for the vaccines.
Please note that we do not offer the Yellow fever vaccination at the practice. You will need to find a travel clinic that offers this. The nearest clinic is in Birmingham. Information can be found at: https://www.masta-travel-health.com/travelclinic/mastabirmingham
