Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

We strongly advise you to check your requirements at least three months before travel, as sometimes a course of up to three vaccinations is needed, which will take several weeks. It is your responsibility to ascertain which vaccinations (and, if relevant, anti-malaria tablets) you need, and also to inform yourself fully of recommended safe travel precautions.

Gloucester Road Medical Centre is able to provide some vaccinations on the NHS that are recommended for travel purposes:

  • Diphtheria, tetanus & polio (combined)
  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Cholera medication is also available on the NHS, but is not commonly required.

Information for travellers is available at www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk.

If you think that you need any of the vaccinations provided by the NHS make an appointment at GRMC, bringing with you a printout of the relevant Fit for Travel information.

Other vaccinations may be necessary for more exotic or unusual destinations, complex travel itineraries or long stay vacations. These need to be given at a high street travel clinic (such as Nomad, Masta or STA Travel). There will be a charge for these.
