If you’re planning to travel outside the UK, you may need to be vaccinated against some of the serious diseases found in other parts of the world.
In the UK, the NHS routine immunisation (vaccination) schedule protects you against a number of diseases, but does not cover all of the infectious diseases found overseas.
If you require any non-NHS travel vaccines, these will need to be provided by other travel clinics.
We can provide these NHS vaccines
- Hepatitis A
- Diphtheria / Tetanus / Polio
- Malaria tablets (on a private prescriptions)
We do not provide these Non-NHS vaccines
- Hepatitis B
- Yellow Fever
- Meningitis ACWY
- Japanese Encephalitis
Affinity Care can provide NHS vaccines for patients who complete the travel assessment below.
Ideally, you should submit this form 6 weeks prior to travelling as some vaccines can take up to 4 weeks to provide effective protection. If you are travelling in less than 4 weeks, we may not be able to offer you an appointment prior to your departure date.
For each country that you are visiting, please consult the following website: www.travelhealthpro.org.uk
This will give you advice on which vaccinations you may require for your travel under the ‘country information’ tab. If you think you require any vaccinations for your trip, please submit the form at the bottom of this page. A separate form will need to be completed for each traveller.
Once you have submitted the form, one of our nurses will give you a call to discuss this in more detail and book an appointment if necessary. This will be within 5 working days of receiving the form.
Even if you do not require any vaccines there are many other elements you should consider for safe travel. Please visit the link below which covers everything from Accident prevention to Water purification!
