Travel Advice and Vaccinations

Our Practice Nurses, Alison Plaistow, Becky Collins and Cate Wilkinson, are able to provide travel advice and a general travel assessment for those patients who are travelling abroad to a single destination.   All patients who are booking for travel advice and vaccinations will be asked to complete a Risk Assessment form which must be returned to the nurses at least 5 working days prior to their appointment.  The form can be downloaded here: Travel Risk Assessment Form or can be emailed or posted to you on request.  Please contact reception to arrange your appointment.

The following vaccines are available without charge:

  • Typhoid  
  • Hepatitis A
  • Diptheria / Tetanus / Polio

The nurses are also able to administer Hepatitis B for travel purposes but this is chargeable.  Prices are subject to change and will be advised of the current fee before attending your appointment.

Please telephone reception to arrange your appointment: 01235 522379

If you would like telephone advice prior to arranging your appointment please phone reception but we recommend that you visit the website Pro Travel Health (below) as this provides comprehensive information including vaccines needed for your chosen destination.

Unfortunately we are unable to provide a vaccination service for patients who are visiting multiple destinations, but our nurses will be able to give advice on the appropriate vaccinations for the areas of travel and advise you how to receive your immunisation.  To check which vaccinations you need for your travels visit:  https://www.protravelinc.com/ or www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk

All vaccines listed below and Hepatitis B can be provided by Travel Clinics e.g. Boots in Oxford, Manor Hospital Oxford, Abingdon Surgery:

  • Rabies

  • J.E. (Japanese Encephalitis)

A fee will be charged by Private Travel Clinics for the consultation and the vaccinations although these rates may vary.

Arranging your Vaccines before Travelling

To ensure that you allow sufficient time for your immunity to develop before travelling please arrange your consultations at least:

  • 1 month before departure for routine trips of 2 – 4 weeks in duration
  • 6 - 12 months before departure for world treks.

Anti Malaria Tablets

If anti-malaria tablets are required for your journey, you will be informed during your consultation.  Most chemists can supply these without a prescription.

Please note anti-malaria tablets are not available on the NHS and you will be charged the retail price by the pharmacy.
