Travel Vaccinations

global air travel

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

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America & Antarctica South America & Antarctica
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific


It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations.  Some of these vaccines have to be ordered as they are not stock vaccines.  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, for example Hepatitis B for travel.

We recommend that you obtain a travel brief before your appointment with the nurse.  Please click on one of the links above, depending on where you are travelling to.

Market Place Surgery offers the following travel vaccinations free of charge:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Tetanus, Diptheria and Polio

Hepatitis B for travel is not available on the NHS.  However, this can be provided privately, for which there is a charge (course of 3 vaccinatiions).


Patients will need to attend a travel clinic for advice and adminisration of the following vaccinations (charges will apply):

  • Yellow Fever
  • Japanese B Encephalitis
  • Tick Borne Encephalitis
  • Rabies
  • Meningitis ACWY
