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.
Please note we now only give the Yellow Fever Vaccinations to patients aged under 60.
For those aged 60 and over will need to go to a private clinic, such as:
- Sussex Travel Clinic in Hove Tel: 01273 749100
- Sussex Travel Clinic in Worthing Tel: 01903 254774
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.

Travelling to Central Belt Africa or South America
If you are travelling to either of these areas it is recommended that you have the Yellow Fever Vaccination, unfortunately, due to national shortages we are unable to obtain supplies of the vaccine, so advise that you contact a travel centre such as MASTA or Sussex Travel Clinic.
