Please complete and submit this to the practice, following receipt of your completed travel questionnaire our Practice Nurse Team will review the Questionnaire within 5 working days.  Once the Questionnaire has been reviewed by our Practice Nurse Team you will be contacted by our Practice Nurse Team to discuss your travel arrangements and to advise you of any appointment required to receive the vaccine/s.

It is important to complete and submit your Travel Questionnaire as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Please be aware that you need 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.  Travel Vaccinations are routine (non-urgent) appointments and you need to ensure that you allow time for the travel questionnaire to be reviewed and sufficient time for a routine appointment to be available.
