The Practice offers travel advice and vaccination to patients registered at the Surgery. In addition to this we are also a designated yellow fever vaccination centre and we offer this service to members of the public as well as our registered patients - contact reception for more details.
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. It is important that you complete the travel questionnaire below and leave it into the surgery 48 hours before this appointment.
Please 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.
There are some travel vaccines which are not available on the NHS and thus have to be ordered by private precription, such vaccinations will incur a charge payable to the chemist. These include:
- Anti-malarial treatment
- Hepatitis B
- Japanese encephalitis
- Tick Bourne encephalitis
At the Archway Surgery Travel Clinic there is a risk consultation fee of £20 per adult / £40 per family for consultations in which non-NHS travel treatment is provided, this fee includes:
- Time required to research the vaccines for your travel
- Face-to-face consultation with a nurse experienced in travel advice
- Administration of any vaccines required
