Travel Information

If you are going abroad, please complete this form 8 weeks before you travel.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with our Travel Nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.  She will want to know which countries you’re visiting and what type of holiday you’re taking to determine what vaccinations are required.

It’s important to make this initial appointent as early as possible, at least six weeks before you travel,  as a second appointment with the Travel Nurse will be required for you to receive the vaccinations, and your second appointment needs to be at least two weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Vaccinations for Hepatitis A, Tetanus/Diphtheria/Polio and Typhoid can be prescribed and so are free of charge, but for those vaccinations we cannot prescribe, private charges are made.

Alternatively

  • Boots work in partnership with MASTA (Medical Advisory Service for Travellers Abroad) to provide travel health nurse consultations at local Boots pharmacies. Visit www.boots.com/travelhealthservice or telephone 01202 681377 for the Boots Dolphin Centre in Poole.
