Immunisations available are:
- Tetanus, diphtheria and polio
- Hepatitis A
- Malaria prophylaxis
Temple House offer a basic travel immunisation service only, if you need other immunisations for your holiday you will need to attend a travel clinic for these
Please note if you are thinking of booking a late deal or travelling last minute, we do not have last minute appointments for holiday immunisations. If you require injections prior to travel or are unsure if you do please complete a Pre-Travel questionnaire (download below) at least 8 weeks before travel and hand into reception. One of our travel nurses will look at your form and check your medical records. You will then be contacted by them or a member of the admin team to arrange an appointment if vaccines are needed or you may just be given travel advice over the phone. Please contact the practice if you have not heard from us after two weeks.
There are charges for some of the injections details of which can be obtained from the Practice Nurse.
Please complete the pre-travel questionnaire (see below) before seeing the practice nurse – this will allow us to identify the correct immunisation and anti-malarial schedule for your proposed trip.
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.
