If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, please complete a Travel Risk Assessment. This should include the countries and the areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
It is important to submit this questionnaire as early as possible, at least six weeks before you travel. The nurse will review your questionnaire and then the surgery will call you to make a convenient travel health appointment.
Your travel health appointment needs to be at least two weeks before you travel, to allow time for any vaccines to work. The nurse will provide travel health advice, information and the following vaccines free of charge:
- Hepatitis A
- Diphtheria, tetanus and polio
There is currently a national shortage of hepatitis A and typhoid vaccinations. The surgery will only be able to administer these vaccines if they are in stock. This is beyond our control.
Some travel vaccines are not available at this surgery, and they will need to be administered at a dedicated travel clinic, for which there may be a charge. Travel clinics can be found locally at:
- Rouen Road, Medical Practice, Norwich – 01603 778277
- UEA Medical Centre, Norwich – 01603 592172
- The Globe Travel Health Centre, Norwich – 01603 667323
Anti-malarial medication is not available on the NHS. Please speak to your local pharmacy who will be able to help you.
