Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to print off the Travel Risk Form below, fill it in and give it in to reception before you make an appointment with the practice travel 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.

Travel Risk Assessment - Please print off, fill in and return to Fairbrook before making your nurses appointment. 

 Travel Risk Assessment Form

This form can be given in, posted to us or emailed to us on  Fairbrook.medicalcentre@nhs.net

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.
