Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. 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: 

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

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.

The Grove Medical Group is a registered Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.

Yellow Fever is the only immunisation that requires a certificate as proof of vaccination and may be needed to enter some countries.

The vaccination is not available on the NHS therefore a fee is charged.  At The Grove Medical Group we charge £56 which includes the nurse consultation, administering the injection and the certificate.

This certificate is very important and must be kept in good condition.  If for any reason you need a new certificate a charge of £15 will be made.  You cannot get a replacement certificate at any other Yellow Fever Centre if you had the vaccination at The Grove Medical Group.  If you are unable to get to this centre for a replacement then you will need to have the vaccine again at another centre.
