If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will be required to complete a travel vaccination questionnaire at least 8 weeks before you date of travel. If your date of departure is within the next 8 weeks we are unable to process your request and will advise you of alternative services available. These forms are available at the reception desk alternatively you can complete the online questionnaire (see link below) and then hand it in to the surgery. The information required will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. There is information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to tell us this information as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as Nurse will check your records for previous vaccination history and then an 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 appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work. Please note that some vaccinations are not available in the surgery and require to be administered at the Travel Clinic at Ayrshire Central Hospital, Irvine. If you are travelling to multiple destinations you will be advised to contact the Travel Clinic.
IMPORTANT:- When completing the form we ask you to provide the specific areas of each country you are travelling to as each area can have different requirements - please use the "further information that might be relevant box" for this information.
If your travel is work-related please contact your Occupational Health Department for information regarding travel vaccinations.
