Travel Vaccination Information and Charges
There are some travel vaccinations issued on an NHS prescription. These include Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Polio, Tetanus and Diptheria. However if you require any other vaccinations, malaria tablets or medicines that are not covered by the NHS you will be required to pay the full cost of these to the pharmacist. You will also be required to pay the practice a private prescription fee of £15 per item and our administration fee of £50 per person. (Children travelling with a paying adult will be exempted from the administration fee).
