Travel Vaccinations for Lorn Medical Centre Patients
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will initially be offered a telephone consultation with the travel nurse to discuss your immunisation requirements. This will include vaccinations and appropriate health advice for the country you are visiting. There is a charge of £25 per person to cover advice and administration charges.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
Europe & Russia North America Central America South America Caribbean Africa Middle East Central Asia East Asia Australasia and Pacific
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required to receive the booster vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 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. We offer travel vaccinations only to our registered patients.
Yellow Fever Vaccinations
We are a Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre which means we can offer this vaccine to both Lorn Medical Centre patients and those not registered with us. The cost for a Yellow Fever Vaccination is £80.
