Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please complete our Travel  Questionnaire  which can be found under the Clinics and Services tab then the Travel Immunisation sub-heading or click to download travel form

Please return this to the practice and then phone the Practice Nurse after 3-4 working days on 0131 557 5545 between 12.00 and 12.45. The nurse will advise you on what vaccinations you will need.

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.
