Travel Vaccincations and Advice

Sandhurst Group Practice  no longer have Travel Clinics

We no longer offer travel injections or advise.  PIf you are travelling to a country for which you will need to have vaccinations, you can visit the following website for information on what is required:

www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk

Alternatively, you can visit any large Pharmacy or a specialised travel clinic.  You will need to bring proof of your consultation with you if you need to book an appointment for any of the injections below.

Travel vaccinations are only free of charge if there is a possibility of bringing a disease in to the country which could be deemed to be detrimental to public health.  Currently, the only vaccinations for travel which are free are:

  • Typhoid
  • Tetanus
  • Hep A

These can still be administered by the Practice Nurse.  Currently there is a nationwide shortage of Hep A so these vaccines are temporarily unavailable or of limited stock.

If, for your travel destination, you only need either/or Typhoid, Tetanus or Hep A (when available) then you can make a 10 minute appointment with one of our Nurses please bring along evidence that you have already received Health advice.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with a travel specialist.  You can visit a private travel clinic or some large Pharmacies to discuss your travel arrangements.  We recommend you do this at least six weeks in advance of your travel date. This will include all countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations and advice are required.  You can also look up the government on-line website who will recommend vaccinations and offer advise about any country you plan to visit.

In addition you may also find the leaflets below a useful reference.
