It is recommended you make an appointment to see the Practice Nurse at least four to six weeks before travelling.  This gives a chance to have all the vaccines you need.  If you are travelling at short notice, we can administer an accelerated programme though this is not so satisfactory.  When booking your appointment, tell the receptionist you are coming for travel jabs.

People working abroad, especially aid workers, may require extra immunisations.

If you originally come from the country you are visiting, it is likely your immunity will have worn off so it is important to be vaccinated.

  • Diphtheria / Tetanus, Polio, Typhoid, and Hepatitis vaccinations are all available free of charge.
  • Meningitis A&C or ACWY, Hepatitis B, and Rabies vaccinations are chargeable (see PRIVATE FEES).
  • The Japanese B Encephalitis vaccine is only available privately from Masta.
  • Dip / Tet and Polio may require a booster every 10 years for travelers to certain areas
  • Hepatitis A requires a booster vaccine 6-12 months after the first with boosters every 10 years.
  • Hepatitis B requires a booster 5 years after the initial course of 3 injections.  Typhoid lasts 3 years.
  • Yellow fever lasts 10 years

Don’t forget to take malaria tablets – these are not available on the NHS and need to be bought from a pharmacy.  Some require a private prescription, some not.  Our nurse will tell you which combination you’ll need – there may be seasonal changes.  Though vitally important, the tablets do not offer complete protection so also take mosquito protection measures (mosquito netting, repellents, long sleeves, sprays and vaporiser, all of which help to some extent).  All children will require protection; reduced dose vaccines and malaria prevention are available.
