If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you should visit NHS Choices using the link http://www.nhs.uk/chq/Pages/1071.aspx?CategoryID=67
This takes you to the page 'Which travel vaccinations are free?', scroll down to the section: 'Which travel vaccinations do I need?', click the link 'Fit for Travel', opening a long list of countries, click on the country, or countries you require information for. This will open a page giving a wealth of advice and which immunisations are needed for that country. You should print this information out to bring to your appointment.
Make an appointment with the nurse for the immunisations needed, bringing the printed information with you including which immunisations are needed.
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 8 weeks before you travel, you may need a further follow up appointment dependant on the course of vaccinations undertaken. Not all of these vaccines are stock items and some may have to be ordered. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to be effective to ensure you have adequate protection.
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. More information can be found on NHS Choices.
