Travel Clinic

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to download and complete this travel questionnaire which will enable the nurse to prepare for your consultation.

Please take the completed and signed travel questionnaire to the practice reception and they will be happy to make a 20 minute appointment with a Practice Nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. 

 

We are a yellow fever registered centre which is a chargeable vaccine.  

Please note we do not provide cholera, rabies, Japanese encephalitis or tuberculosis.  Malaria tablets are available from some local pharmacies. 

There is currently a global shortage of hepatitis B vaccine which is now affecting the UK. We have put in place measures so that the NHS and other providers can vaccinate those at highest risk. This does mean that those at lower risk may not be able to get the vaccine today but will have to wait a little longer.  Please follow this link for further advice.

 

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required with the practice nurse.

If your travel plans are complex or you work in Exeter or would like a Saturday appointment then contact the Exeter Travel Clinic:

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over (eg Yellow Fever) and above the normal prescription charge.  This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
