Please download this travel form, or collect one from the surgery reception, and complete it as fully as possible.
Please also take the time to visit www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk to read up about Hepatitis B, rabies, and other risk factors that may be relevant to your travels, so that when you see the nurse you are well informed.
Please then book an appointment with a nurse and bring your completed form with you.
If you do not being your completed form with you we cannot address your travel needs safely in the allotted appointment time and may have to send you away to rebook.
At this initial appointment the nurse will discuss your requirements. You may not receive any vaccinations at this first appointment, but, if necessary, appointments will then be made for your vaccines.
If you are going on an extended, complex trip visiting several countries, please book a double appointment initially.
We recommend you book your appointment a minimum of 6 weeks before you are due to travel, as some vaccines are given as courses over weeks.
The surgery does not have last minutes appointments available, and any travel vaccination should be given a minimum of two weeks before you go, so please plan your trip to the surgery well in advance.
If you book in with a nurse too close to your travel date we may not be able to offer you vaccines. Alternatively, you could visit a travel clinic.
* Please note that some vaccinations will incur a fee, these can be viewed on our Non-NHS Services tab above.
If you require a Yellow Fever vaccination, and are not a registered patient at the Glastonbury Surgery, you will need to complete a Yellow Fever form . Your GP will need to complete part of the form, so please remember to allow sufficient time for them to do this, and for you to collect it prior to your appointment with us. If you do not have a completed form with you at the time of your appointment, we will not be able to provide you with the vaccination.
