Overseas travel advice

The Student Medical Centre can help you with overseas travel advice, including;

Travel vaccinations

Please make an appointment with the nurse 3-4 months prior to travel where possible and complete a travel risk assessment form to ensure that your full immunisation programme can be completed before you leave the country, otherwise you may not be fully protected. 

Information about countries and the vaccinations required can be found on the Fit for Travel website

It is important to make the initial appointment as early as possible as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the 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.

Please note that, other than private Yellow Fever vaccinations, we are only able to offer NHS travel vaccinations, i.e. Hepatitis A, Typhoid and Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio and that all other travel vaccinations are private and students will need to find an alternative travel clinic for these. Talbot Medical Centre is an authorised Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.
