The Stennack Surgery is a designated yellow fever vaccination centre.
For more information about the yellow fever vaccine please visit the NHS Choices Travel Vaccinations Page
To help us offer the appropriate advice, you will be asked to fill out a Travel Health Questionnaire before making your appointment with the nurse. This will ensure the nurse has all of the relevant information prior to your appointment. You can print the form out using the link below and bring it to the surgery to make your appointment.
Travel Risk Assessment Form
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. You will need to fill out a travel questionnaire, this is available from the Surgery or using the link below. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
