As soon as you have booked your holiday, you can use the link below to complete a travel risk questionnaire (one for each person travelling) and send it to us online. You need to do this at least 6 weeks prior to travel as some immunisations need to be given 4 weeks before travel and we do need adequate time to arrange your vaccination regime and organise suitable appointments. If your travel needs are very complex or you are travelling for a period of more than 8 weeks, it may be necessary for you to attend a specialist travel clinic in Aberdeen.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge as well as an administration charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. You will be told before you get any immunisations if you have to pay for them and how much is payable. Payment will be due prior to immunisation.
If your travel plans are related to employment, then it is advisable that you contact your employers' Occupational Health Service to arrange.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations in the links below - just click to open the continent you are travelling to, then click again to select the country and you will be able to access all you need to know for safe travel.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form and the nurse will make contact with you prior to giving any immunisations. If you prefer, this questionnaire can be printed off (or a blank collected from reception), completed and handed into reception. To help us get your requirements accurate, please note the area of the country you are travelling to - just write this into the 'Country' box.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
