Travel Information

Patients are advised that they will need to check on the travel immunisation advice website below to discover what immunisations will be needed before travel. Your GP is not the most appropriate person to contact about this as they do not give travel immunisations to patients. If the travel immunisation advice website is advising that you will need to have immunisations, please contact a member of the Reception Team who will then be happy to book an appointment with one of our Practice Nurses in a Travel Clinic.

We advise that you check up your health requirements by going to the following website:

www.nathnac.net

Take a print out from the website of what you need. Remember, that requirements may differ depending on the type of holiday or work you may be undertaking. A holiday spending 2 weeks in a resort will sometimes require fewer vaccinations than a holiday backpacking in areas with few tourists.

As soon as you have found out about your requirements, make an appointment with the Practice Nurse, by phoning Reception and telling them it is an appointment for travel vaccinations. Please make this appointment well in advance of travelling, at least 6 weeks prior to departure. This is because some vaccinations require more than one injection several weeks apart.

We do provide the following travel immunisations and treatments free of charge here at Deddington Health Centre:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Tetanus
  • Diphtheria
  • Polio

You will need to visit a travel clinic for travel immunisations that we do not provide at Deddington Health Centre, such as:

  • Yellow Fever
  • Rabies
  • Hepatitis B
  • Japanese Encephalitis
  • Meningitis ACWY (for travel purposes)
  • Malaria treatment

You should expect to pay a private fee for the above travel vaccinations in a travel clinic.
