As travel to foreign countries is relatively simple these days, it is easy to forget or not realise what health risks we may be subjecting ourselves to.
The administering of travel vaccinations and travel health advice is a large part of our Practice Nurses' role here at St. George's.
We recommend that if you are travelling to a foreign country, you check the website www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk. Look up the country/countries to be visited and if you think you may need vaccinating or are at all unsure, then make an appointment to see one of our Practice Nurses, preferably 2 months before departure. You will need to complete a travel assessment form, which is available from reception or you can print a copy from the link below, and bring it to the appointment with you. One form is needed for each person travelling.
Please also bring with you any records of vaccinations you have received in the past
