Our practice is able to offer free travel vaccinations under the NHS programme.
Details of which vaccines are offered free by the NHS are on the NHS online guide.
Depending on where you are travelling to, you might need some travel vaccines that are not included in the NHS programme. You will need to contact a private travel service if this is the case.
When should I start thinking about the vaccines I need?
The most important thing to bear in mind about travel vaccinations is the importance of forward planning. The advice on NHS website is that you should contact your GP at least eight weeks before your travel date.
If you think you require travel vaccinations, please request a travel advice questionnaire through our online consultation tool (e-consent)
Hepatitis B Vaccination
Please note that Hepatitis B vaccination for occupational health purposes is not provided free of charge on the NHS and we don’t provide it privately to patients.
If your travel date is less than 5 weeks away and we can’t provide suitable appointments there are private travel clinics in the Southport area but these do, of course, charge a fee.
