Changes to Limehouse Travel Vaccinations
Before you book your appointment please go to the following link Fit For Travel for information regarding your travel destination and book your appointment 6 weeks before you travel:
From 1st August 2019 the Practice will be offering appointments for Travel Vaccinations on the last Friday of the month. Unfortunately we will not be offering appointments outside of these clinics.
If we are unable to offer you an appointment you can contact the following places:
Nomad – Canary Wharf Travel Clinic – 01341 555 061 or www.nomadtravel.co.uk
If you have booked an appointment with the travel clinic and need to cancel and then re-book, the practice will try their best to provide the appointments but due to demand, we cannot guarantee this will be possible.
To ensure you are vaccinated before travelling, please allow as much time as possible to arrange an appointment at least 6 weeks before you travel. If you are travelling as a family it is definitely recommended that you book all the appointments as soon a possible.
Some important information about Travel vaccination
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Please note only the following vaccines are available on NHS prescriptions:
Advice on Malaria will be given.
Hepatitis B is not routinely available free of charge and therefore you will be charged for this vaccination when requested in connection with travel.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
