May 2023 Unfortunately we do not currently have any staff trained to give travel vaccinations and cannot offer this service to patients
We can ONLY offer NHS travel vaccinations to patients registered at The Merrywood Practice
We strongly advise you check your vaccine and malaria protection requirements at least 4 - 8 weeks prior to travelling. Sometimes a course of up to 3 vaccinations can be required, which may take several weeks to complete.
It is your responsibility to check which vaccines and/or malaria tablets you require and also familiarise yourself with other recommended safe travel precautions.
NHS Vaccinations The following vaccines are commonly recommended for many holiday destinations and are free of charge on the NHS
Diptheria, tetanus and polio ( booster 10 yearly for travel)
Hepatitis A ( if you have had 2 vaccines, you have 25 years cover)
Typhoid booster 3 yearly
Cholera ( not commonly required)
These can be administered at the surgery following a nurse telephone consultation. Please ensure ( if possible) you have your immunisation history for the past 10 years available for the nurse discussion.
Please call 0117 944 9750 to book an appointment with one of our treatment room nurses.
Private Vaccines We are unable to give any other vaccinations for travel and you need to contact the following clinics who provide a more extensive range of travel vaccinations.
These are private clinics and there will be a charge for any additional vaccinations.
