If you are registered here as a patient at the Verwood Surgery and require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to collect a form from reception,complete it and return to reception who will make arrangements for the necessary appointments with a practice nurse.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to collect this form as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as several appointments may be required with the practice nurse. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your vaccination course needs to be completed at least 3 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
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.
