Travel Vaccination and Advice

With travel restrictions eased, many people are all looking forward to getting away. Maybe visiting friends or family, or just booking an overseas trip.

We offer travel vaccinations to patients registered at Elm Hayes Surgery.

We can offer Hep A, Typhoid and Tetanus vaccinations (providing these are available). We can also give basic travel advice.

Should you require other vaccines, that are not covered by the NHS, you will be asked to attend a private travel clinic i.e. Malaria.

It is important to make contact with us as soon as possible, at least 6 weeks before you travel, as some vaccinations need to be ordered as they are not a stock item.

You will need an initial telephone call with the Practice Nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. Following that appointment you may need another appointment to actually receive any vaccinations that are required.

Please note some of these vaccinations are not available on the NHS and will be chargeable. You may be asked to attend a private travel clinic.
