Do you need vaccinations?

Our Nurses can provide comprehensive travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.

Travel Fees

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

If you are a Portsdown Group Practice patient, many vaccinations are available on the NHS, you will be notified of any charges before your appointment.

If you are not a Portsdown Group Practice patient then please see the table below for our current travel vaccination fees before filling in our travel questionnaire

Please note that since 1st August 2018 we no longer accept Cheques or American Express cards as payment methods.
