If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
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 6 - 8 weeks before for routine travel and 3 - 4 months before for complicated travel scenarios e.g. backpacking, charity / voluntary workers and extended periods of stay.
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.

If you are a newly registered patient it may be useful for you to bring details of your vaccination history with you to your appointment.
