If you require any travel vaccinations because you are travelling to another country, you need to make an appointment at a local pharmacy who offer travel advice to discuss your travel requirements. This will include letting them know which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required for the area.  You will also be advised of which vaccines can be administered at your GP surgery free of charge and which ones you will have to pay for.

The pharmacy will supply you with a travel risk assessment form that needs to be filled out and brought to your appointment.
