It is important to book well in advance for travel clinic appointments as some vaccinations are due up to 3 months before departure.
Available every autumn - watch the waiting room noticeboard for details of this from October onwards. Flu vaccinations are particularly important for patients with chronic diseases such as chest problems, heart disease and diabetes, but are also important for our elderly patients or those patients whose work involves them dealing with the public on a daily basis. If you are a carer, it is also important that you have a flu vaccination.
Flu vaccinations for children may be given at school or in practice and only for specific age ranges or for those in an at risk group. You will be notified if your child is entitled to a flu vaccination.
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 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.
We provide a full range of private medical examinations, travel vaccinations plus forms and certificates.You do not need to be a registered patient at Mark Street to access these services. Please ask at reception for details.
