Vaccinations

We administer the full range of travel vaccinations and advice. We are an authorised Yellow Fever centre.

For current vaccination recommendations and comprehensive travel advice, check the free NHS site Fit for Travel.

It is recommended you make an appointment to see the Practice Nurse at least 6 weeks before travelling. This gives a chance to have all the vaccines you need. If you are travelling at short notice, we can administer an accelerated programme though this is not so satisfactory. When booking your appointment, tell the receptionist you are coming for travel jabs.

People working abroad, especially aid workers, may require extra immunisations.

If you originally come from the country you are visiting, it is likely your immunity will have worn off so it is important to be vaccinated.

  • Diphtheria/Tetanus, Polio, Typhoid, and Hepatitis vaccinations are all available free of charge.
  • Yellow Fever, Meningitis A&C or ACWY, Hepatitis B, and Rabies vaccinations are chargeable (see fees for private services). Certificates are included.
  • The Japanese B Encephalitis vaccine is only available privately from Masta.
  • Dip/Tet and Polio may require a booster every 10 years for travellers to certain areas
  • Heptatitis A requires a booster vaccine 6-12 months after the first with boosters every 10 years.
  • Hepatitis B requires a booster 5 years after the initial course of 3 injections. Typhoid lasts 3 years.
  • Yellow fever lasts 10 years

Don’t forget to take malaria tablets – these are not available on the NHS and need to be bought from a pharmacy. Some require a private prescription, some not. Our nurse will tell you which combination you’ll need – there may be seasonal changes. Though vitally important, the tablets do not offer complete protection so also take mosquito protection measures (mosquito netting, repellents, long sleeves, sprays and vapouriser, all of which help to some extent). All children will require protection; reduced dose vaccines and malaria prevention are available.

Flu Immunisation

Seasonal flu is a highly infectious illness caused by a flu virus.

The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, causing a sudden high temperature and general aches and pains.

You could also lose your appetite, feel nauseous and have a dry cough. Symptoms can last for up to a week.

We offer ‘at risk’ groups the flu vaccine at a certain time each year to protect you against the flu virus.

You may be invited for a flu jab if you are:

  • over 65 years of age
  • pregnant

or have:

  • a serious heart or chest complaint, including asthma
  • serious kidney disease
  • diabetes
  • lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment
  • if you have ever had a stroke
  • If you have any queries please contact the surgery.
