Do you need vaccinations?

Our nurses can provide comprehensive travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.

Travel Assessment

We offer a full travel advice and immunisation service. If you are travelling abroad please complete and submit the travel form in plenty of time (we recommend 6-8 weeks) before your journey.

Due to a UK-wide shortage of some of the recommended vaccines for travel, the Practice is only able to offer a limited service.

There are local private travel clinics that may have vaccines in stock. Contact:

Barnsley Travel Clinic: 01226 729868 or visit

Sheffield Travel Clinic: 0114 271 1900 or visit

Travellers are advised to plan well in advance and to seek travel health advice from a suitably qualified healthcare professional 6-8 weeks prior to their trip.

Travel Vaccination Prices

Travel advice is covered by the NHS; however some vaccinations and prescriptions are only available privately. Payment for non-NHS services must be made at the first travel appointment.

The following vaccines are immediately available in the surgery:

NHS: Diphtheria, Tetanus, Polio, Hepatitis A, Typhoid

Non-NHS: Hepatitis B (adult) £25 per dose (usually 3 or 4 required), Rabies £55 per dose (usually 3 required)

The following vaccines can be obtained by private prescription and a charge of £25 is payable to the surgery for each visit to administer. The cost of the vaccine is also payable to the chemist. You will be required to obtain the necessary vaccines and pay the pharmacy separately for these and return them to the practice for administration.

Hepatitis B (child) Meningitis ACWY, Japanese Encephalitis, Tick-borne Encephalitis.

Vaccines must be stored between 2 and 8 degrees in a refrigerator; the ideal way to do this is to hand them in to the practice as soon as possible.

All anti-malaria medications are provided privately. If recommended a private prescription will be issued at a cost of £15 and the cost of the medication will be payable to the pharmacy.

Yellow Fever vaccination is not provided in the surgery but available from specialist travel clinics.
