For advice on foreign travel please ring the information line at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine on 0891 172111, whenever possible eight weeks before leaving. The practice nurse will arrange necessary immunisations.

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. Our staff will be able to calculate the cost once the travel vaccination form has been completed and seen by a nurse.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the travel health questionnaire form available from the surgery before coming to see the nurse.
