If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, please contact the surgery for further information. Alternatively you can visit the MASTA website, NaTHNaC website or Boots in Truro who can also offer advice. They will need to know which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
Please fill out the attached travel questionnaire to allow the nurse to order in the appropriate vaccinations prior to your appointment: Travel Questionnaire
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 may be required and certain vaccines need to be administered 2 weeks before you travel to provide cover.
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.
