If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please download and complete the travel questionnaire above Please drop the form into Cassio Surgery as soon as possible - at least six weeks before you travel as you may need a course of vaccinations.
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 - these include Hepatitis B and Meningitis ACWY vaccinations
Travelling to Pakistan
There is some concern that due to falling vaccination rates that there could be an outbreak of Polio.
