Travel is a non-NHS service. If you are planning a trip abroad and think you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, please use the website Travel Health Pro to determine what vaccinations you are required/advised to have and Fit to Travel for up to date travel advice for your destination. This will include which countries and areas within the countries you are visiting.
It is up to you to decide what vaccinations to have.
You then need to make a 20 minute appointment with the practice nurse at least 2 weeks before you travel, to allow the vaccines to work.
When booking the appointment please inform the reception staff when and where you will be travelling, as some travel vaccines are not stock vaccine and have to be ordered in advance. Some travel vaccines have to be 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.
Free Travel Vaccinations Included on the NHS are:
- Polio, Diphtheria and Tetanus booster (3 in 1 vaccine) – 10 years protection;
- Hepatitis A – 25 years protection after 2 doses;
- Typhoid fever – 3 years of protection;
- Cholera (only if considered high risk).
All other travel vaccinations are treated as private for travel purposes and therefore command a fee. Therefore, if your Travel Health Pro information recommends other vaccinations that we cannot provide, you can obtain them from a private travel clinic, but please be advised, you will need to book an appointment with a private travel clinic at least 6 weeks in advance of your intended trip, as you may need a course of vaccinations.

Bramham Medical Centre is not a registered Yellow Fever vaccination centre, therefore if your planned foreign travel requires you to have a Yellow Fever vaccination, you will need to find an alternative clinic.

If you are travelling to remote areas where access to medical care is limited, we strongly advise you to carry a medical kit appropriate to the nature of your trip.
