Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you think that you may require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, you will need to complete a Travel Form, which must then be handed in to the practice, at least 6 weeks before you are due to travel, marked clearly for the attention of the Travel Nurse. 

If you are outwith this timescale, you will need to contact:

  • NHS Occupational Health, Elgin on (01343) 567386, or
  • RS Occupational Health, Inverness (01463) 513100
  • Ark Occupational Health, Aberdeen (01224) 562747
  • Capita, Aberdeen (01224) 669000

If you are within the appropriate timescale, the Travel Form can be printed off (see below) or collected from the practice, then completed and returned, including as much detail as possible. This will enable the travel nurse to give you the best and most up to date advice.  The nurse will contact you in due course, with information on recommended immunisations and other travel advice.  You will then need to arrange an appointment to get the recommended injections, allowing sufficient time, as advised, for the injections to take effect before you depart on your travels.  There may be a charge for this, as not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.  These are detailed below  - where applicable, payments are required prior to the administration of the vaccinations.

DIPTHERIA/TETANUS/POLIO, HEPATITIS A and TYPHOID

Patients issued NHS Prescription.  No charge for administering injection

HEPATITIS A BOOSTER - As above.
