With the world getting smaller and more exotic destinations available to us, it is important to be aware of the potential hazards of travelling.
This practice is an approved Yellow Fever Centre, and we carry a stock of most commonly used vaccines.
Please telephone the reception staff for a list of the commonly given vaccines, you require for the country you are visiting. You will then be given an appointment to have these administered (so that we can ensure we have the vaccines in stock).
Please note: Ideally should have all your vaccines administered at least 6 weeks before you wish to travel to ensure you are fully covered. At your consultation, with the Doctor or Nurse, they will ensure you receive all the necessary vaccines you require for the country you are visiting.
Travel vaccines are expensive due to the high cost of raw ingredients, so clients are advised to enquire about the cost of their vaccinations prior to their consultation.
