Please make an appointment in plenty of time before your date of travel. To do this, please contact Patient Services and ask for an appointment with the travel nurse.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
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.
Why do you need immunisation against Yellow Fever?
Yellow fever is a serious disease which occurs in certain countries of Africa and South America. It is often fatal and there is no cure. Yellow fever is caused by a virus passed to humans by bites from infected mosquitoes. Some countries require a certificate of immunisation against yellow fever before they will let you into the country.
- Yellow fever is the only disease which routinely requires proof of immunisation.
- In some countries immunisation is compulsory for all incoming visitors.
- In some countries immunisation is compulsory for those who have travelled from a 'yellow fever' area or country.
How often is it needed?
You should have an injection of vaccine at least 10 days before the date of travel to allow immunity to develop. A single dose of vaccine provides immunity for at least 10 years. A repeat certificate of immunisation is required every 10 years if you are still at risk.
Yellow Fever vaccine can only be given at accredited centres. The Staploe Medical Centre is an accredited centre.
