If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to come to Milborne Port Surgery or Templecombe Surgery to collect a travel Questionnaire form. Our reception team will be happy to help you.
You can check the vaccination requirements and latest travel health news for each country of the world on this site:
NaTHNaC - Home (travelhealthpro.org.uk)
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
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.
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
