Travel Information

If you require any vaccinations for foreign travel you will need to fill out a travel form and then make an appointment with the practice nurse at least 8 weeks or more before travelling.

Some vaccinations you may need may not be available through Airthrey Park Medical Centre and you will be advised to attend a private travel clinic or the Campus Pharmacy. 

Vaccinations that you can get from your GP on a prescription are:

  • Polio - given as Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio vaccine
  • Typhoid
  • Hepatitis A
  • Cholera

You may be advised what other vaccines are needed for your trip and possibly Antimalarials too. If this is the case, then the following vaccines will need to be given at a private clinic (at a cost):

  • Japanese B Encephalitis
  • Yellow Fever
  • Rabies (certain groups may be eligible for the vaccine on the NHS i.e Bat handlers. Check with your GP/Practice nurse)
  • Meningitis ACWY
  • Tickborne Encephalitis
  • Hepatitis B (course of single vaccine)
  • TB skin test and the BCG vaccine
  • Influenza vaccine
  • Antimalarials

Therefore giving yourself enough time before travelling is crucial. Please complete and download the questionnaire giving us as much detail as possible. If you can, please hand this in before your appointment.
