If you are planning a trip abroad which may require you to have vaccinations or take malaria tablets, please contact the surgery at least 6 weeks prior to your trip, more if possible and please note that two separate appointments are required.
It may help with travel plans, especially last minute ones, to see what vaccines are required for each country. You can check these out on the NHS website Fit for Travel at www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk
This simple website gives up to date information on vaccines, malaria prophylaxis and general travel advice. This website is the sister website to the one the nurses use within the surgery so the information here is the same as we will give you during a travel consultation.
Unfortunately if you decide to make last minute travel plans that require vaccinations we cannot always guarantee availability of appointments to suit your needs. Due to the time it takes for us to organise vaccines to be ordered at pharmacies and due to our having to prioritise those with clinical needs, we cannot always accommodate last minute requests.
It is recommended in these situations to contact Abermed, a private clinic in Inverness, where they keep a stock of all vaccines and these can usually be given at the time of consultation. Their contact details are as follows:
Abermed, 2 Seafield Road, Inverness. Tel : 01463 710441.
