Remember that if you are travelling to Europe you will need a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to enable you to obtain medical treatment. This replaced the old E111 and will cover you for all EU countries plus Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland.
Visit your local post office or benefits office to pick up an application form for one of these.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
|Europe & Russia||North America|
|Central America||South America|
|Middle East||Central Asia|
|East Asia||Australasia and Pacific|
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.
