Travel Vaccinations

global air travel

we are currently only offering travel vaccination to patients registered at Baddow Village Surgery

WE ARE A REGISTERED YELLOW FEVER CENTRE 

Arranging your vaccinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel then please complete a travel questionnaire  at least 8 weeks before you travel. The travel questionnaire is available from reception.

For complex travel plans, we request that in addition you provide us with a copy of your itinerary which will help the nurse assess your requirements.

Once you have submitted your questionnaire, please allow three full working days and then call the surgery to confirm whether you need any vaccinations. If you do require a vaccination, reception will be happy to arrange an appointment for you with a nurse. More than one appointment may be required depending on the vaccinations you need.

Please note that due to the high volume of travel questionnaires we receive, we assess the forms and vaccinate patients by travel date, rather than in the order we receive the forms. Therefore, if your travel date is some distance away, the nurse may not have dealt with your form within the three working days as outlined above.


Vaccination charges

CHARGES: Assessing Travel Questionnaires is a service for which there is an administrative charge of £5 per patient, payable at the time that the completed Travel Questionnaire is returned to the surgery.

This charge is non-refundable, regardless of whether vaccinations are recommended by the nurse or not.

Some travel vaccinations are free of charge, e.g. tetanus, diphtheria, polio, hepatitis A and typhoid. There is a charge for rabies, hepatitis B, yellow fever, meningitis ACWY etc. All malaria tablets, with the exception of chloroquine and paludrine, are available on private prescription only.
