Our travel clinic offers a full range of travel related immunisations to the general public and employees and these will cover infections worldwide. Some vaccinations are available on the NHS (we will tell you if you qualify to receive these free of charge on the NHS), however a number of vaccines are only available privately.
You should be aware that some infections do not have adequate vaccination protection and we will advise you on how to minimise your risk when you travel.
Every vaccination has the potential to cause side effects. We advise you to check your itinerary carefully and then visit the website www.travelhealthpro.org.uk to check which vaccines you may require. At your appointment we can discuss your travel risks and help you decide which vaccines you should have.
We are a registered Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre. Yellow Fever is a serious infection present in some parts of the world - namely South America and Africa. There is a requirement for proof of vaccination when travelling from a country with the infection to one that is infection free. Please check your itinerary to see if this will be required. Yellow fever vaccination is 98% effective but it is associated with some rare but very serious side effects. In general the risks of vaccination are less than the risk of contracting the disease. There are some groups of people in whom the risk is increased or it is contraindicated to have the vaccine. Please check the guidance and information on the following website www.travelhealthpro.org.uk/disease/yellowfever. This will enable you to make an informed decision and if necessary avoid travelling to countries with a yellow fever risk.
Private prescriptions are issued for travel related medication, for example malaria, high altitude, remote travelling. There is a charge for this service.
In addition, we run an NHS travel service for all the patients of Bradford on Avon and Melksham Health Partnership if they complete and return the Pre-Travel Questionnaire six weeks prior to departure. There is a consultation fee for requests outside of this time frame but any NHS vaccinations will be available free of charge.
Complete our Pre-Travel Questionnaire online today by downloading a copy that you can then email to us. Our administrator will then contact you to confirm your requirements.
