Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to make an appointment with a Practice Nurse and advise which country or countries you will be travelling to.

It is important to make this appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as the vaccines have to be ordered (they are not a stock item) and is in the best interests of your safety.

Westcourt Medical Centre is able to offer travel advice and immunisation against:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio

These vaccinations are generally all that are required for Europe, North America and New Zealand, for travel for routine work or leisure purposes, for a period of time not exceeding 4 weeks.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
