Travel Clinic

We have a limited number of travel appointments so please try booking in  advance. The travel appointements  are  usually released up to 4 weeks in advance. There is high demand on these appointments, as such we cannot guarantee there will be one available to suit your planned travel dates.

The travel vaccines which we provide, and are only those free on the NHS are Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio, Typhoid and Hepatitis A (subject to availability). Other travel vaccines, if required, are available privately elsewhere (such as Yellow Fever, Rabies, Hepatitis B, Meningococcal ACWY). There are many alternative providers of travel health advice and vaccinations in London, largely at certain chemists or private travel clinics. (Please see details below). Most chemists provide malaria tablets for adults without the need for a prescription from your GP practice.

Please note that  we are currently experiencing  a supply issues  for some of the travel  vaccines  such as    Child Hep A and Adult Hep A/ thyphoid . 


Travel Vaccine Recommendations and Advice:

Please do check vaccine recommendations and Travel advice from NaTHNaC and/or Fit For Travel.  These provide general travel information, vaccine recommendations, information about malaria and other risks


Your Vaccination Records  

You can view the past vaccines that we have recorded electronically for you once you are registered via the NHS App or Patient Choices. We may not have complete records, especially if you had vaccinations abroad or privately. As a guideline, you should have completed the UK Routine Immunisation schedule, which includes 2 doses of Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) and the Tetanus/diphtheria/polio course in your childhood and teens.

Vaccine Length of Protection:

  • Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio: 10 years, Typhoid: 3 years
  • Hepatitis A: 1 dose lasts 1 year. A second dose of Hepatitis A provides cover for 25 years from the date of the second dose.
  • Yellow Fever: 1 dose lasts lifelong (2016 World Health Organisation Agreement)
  • Rabies: Pre-exposure course of 3 lasts 10 years (2 x post exposure doses required if you have an animal bite/scratch abroad.

We do not stock Yellow Fever, Rabies, Meningitis ACWY or the Hepatitis B vaccine for travel purposes and you should contact other providers for these.

If you have booked an appointment with our nurse please kindly ensure that you completed the below questionnaire at least one week prior to your appointment with the nurse.
