Travel Vaccinations information sheet

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.

You should seek advice from a pharmacy or a private travel clinic at least 8 weeks before you're due to travel. You can also go on line to ascertain what you require https://www.masta-travel-health.com

We will provide you with a summary of your previous vaccinations as per the medical records we hold for you

Some vaccines need to be given well in advance to allow your body to develop immunity.

And some vaccines involve a number of doses spread over several weeks or months.

You may be more at risk of some diseases, for example, if you're:

  • travelling in rural areas
  • backpacking
  • staying in hostels or camping
  • on a long trip rather than a package holiday

If you have a pre-existing health problem, this may make you more at risk of infection or complications from a travel-related illness.

Windmill Health Centre is only able to supply NHS vaccinations; if you require the NHS vaccinations please book  book the next available appointment with a Practice Nurse. If the next available appointment is not soon enough for your travel needs then you will need to pay for the injections at the travel clinic or pharmacy.

You must call to book an appointment with these services first.
