If you are planning on travelling you may need some vaccinations or medication.
Travelling is one of life's great pleasures but it's important to remember that there is no such thing as risk free travel. Patients travelling abroad should take some time to consider any potential risks in the areas being visited. If you are pregnant or have some existing illness you should seek specific advice.
How to plan your travel vaccinations
Please check the recommended vaccinations for your destination on a vaccinations website for example National Travel Health Network Centre.
Chew Medical Practice does not provide a full travel clinic service. However, we do provide the agreed NHS vaccinations. Click here for a list of NHS vaccinations.
For these free vaccines please complete a Travel Risk Assessment form and make an appointment to see a Nurse. Click Here for a copy of the Travel Risk Assessment form.
Please remember to leave enough time before travelling (minimum of 6 weeks) as some vaccines might need more than one dose and can take time to complete the course.
If you need further advice or vaccines you will need to book an appointment with one of the private travel clinics for a full risk assessment, advice and private vaccines.
If you require an up to date list of all your vaccinations, please speak to a member of our Reception team who will be happy to help.
A range of travel products is on sale in the Dispensary, including high strength insect repellent and anti-malarial tablets. A price list is available to download Click Here
