Your Immunisation History

You can view the past immunisations that we currently have recorded electronically for you once you are registered via the NHS App or Patient Choices App. 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 childhood and teens.

Some of the commonly provided vaccines for travel give cover for:

Diptheria/Tetanus/Polio: 10 years

Typhoid: 3 years

Hepatitis A: 1 dose lasts 1 year. However please note that due to hepatitis A vaccine supply problems, temporary dose sparing recommendations are in place, NHS England advice is that 1 dose of Hepatitis A provides 5 years cover.

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.

Travel vaccines that we stock which are available free on the NHS:

  • Diptheria/Tetanus/Polio
  • Typhoid
  • Hepatitis A

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.
