Travel Vaccine Clinics
Appointments for travel vaccines are available throughout the week at the surgery.
Depending on the destination travellers may require up to 6 weeks to complete their schedules. If you have less time than this before travelling or would find it more convenient to have your vaccinations elsewhere we suggest that you contact a private clinic and we have a list of these available at the surgery if required.
What to do next:-
- Read the contents of this travel pack carefully
- Make an appointment at the travel clinic by telephoning the surgery
- Complete our risk assessment form (CLICK HERE to download it) and drop it into the surgery at least a week in advance of your appointment.
- Use the MASTA Vaccine Checker at http://www.masta-travel-health.com/VaccineChecker to determine which vaccines you require. Print a copy of this and drop it into the surgery with the completed risk assessment form
Not all travel vaccines are available on the NHS and some are costly. A schedule of current prices is below. The Practice Nurse will ask you to pay by cheque when you attend your first appointment, before administering your vaccinations. Sorry but credit and debit cards are not accepted.
Some longhaul or complex itineries will require more than one appointment.

European Health Insurance Card
A valid European Health Insurance Card gives you the right to access state-provided healthcare during a temporary stay in another European Economic Area (EEA) country or Switzerland.
The EHIC covers treatment that is medically necessary until your planned return home. Treatment should be provided on the same basis as it would to a resident of that country, either at a reduced cost or, in many cases, for free.
