Travel Information

Vaccines NOT available on the NHS

The procedure at the surgery for Travel Health Appointments is :

  • Collect a travel form from reception once you have booked your holiday
  • Complete the form, and hand it in at reception
  • The form will be passed to the Practice Nurse who will look through your records to determine which immunisations you have had, and will decide which vaccinations you may need
  • Please contact the surgery to see if you require any further vaccinations and a travel health appointment
  • If you require Hepatitis B there will be a charge
  • If you require Yellow Fever, you will need a private travel health appointment for this.  Pharmacy 365 in Stockton, City Doc in Middlesbrough and James Cook University Hospital administer Yellow Fever vaccinations.
  • If you plan to travel at short notice, we may not be able to offer you an appointment, therefore you would need to make arrangements to be seen at a private travel health clinic.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.  This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. 

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia 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.
