Holidays need careful planning and, depending on the type of holiday, length of stay and the destination, most will need some sort of vaccination programme or an update of routine immunisations as necessary.
Gap years and sabbaticals usually require more detailed immunisation programmes. We would recommend you consult a practice nurse at least 6 weeks before your trip.
The nearest yellow fever centre is at Dr Hassona's practice in Hill Top. Any charges that apply for immunisations compare favourably with other private travel clinics.
We would thoroughly recommend that all patients planning to travel outside the EU visit the NHS Fit for Travel website, it contains a huge amount of useful information on immunisations and healthcare abroad.
