Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. You MUST have an appointment AT LEAST 6 weeks before travel to discuss your requirements. This allows time to collect prescriptions and then arrange to pick them up from the pharmacy and re-appoint to have the vaccines administered. Alternatively, for travellers unable to attend the surgery AND SIMILARLY AT LEAST 6 WEEKS BEFORE TRAVEL, you can complete our Travel Questionnaire. This will be reviewed by the Practice Nurse who will reply to you within 5 working days, either by e-mail or telephone. It is VITAL that the questionnaire is completed fully FOR EACH TRAVELLER, otherwise the nurse may not be able to adequately advise you. We would suggest that if you are unable to be seen at the surgery you can seek advice and vaccinations via either the MASTA Clinic, 19 Mitchell Street, G1 0330 1004179 or the Brownlee Centre at Gartnavel General Hospital on 0141 211 1074. Travel vaccine guidance is also available via various travel websites.

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.

Vaccines that are available on the NHS include:

Hepatitis A

If malaria tablets are required, a private prescription will be issued at a cost of £10 per prescription (you will also need to pay the pharmacy for the actual medication).
