Please complete the online travel questionnaire below if you are planning to travel abroad and think you may need some vaccinations. The nurse will check through your travel plans and if necessary arrange an appointment for vaccinations and anti-malaria tablets or she may give you more general travel advice either at an appointment or by phone. Some travel vaccinations are not available under the NHS and a fee will be charged, this also applies to travel medication such as anti-malarial tablets.
The surgery at Kirkby Lonsdale is a registered yellow fever vaccination centre, and appointments for this immunisation can be made with the practice nurse. This vaccination is not available under the NHS and a charge will therefore be made. We also provide yellow fever vaccinations for patients of other practices, please ring the surgery for more information.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to get in touch with us as early as possible- at least 6 weeks before you travel - as some vaccinations are given as a course and more than one appointment will be required to ensure adequate protection. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine and your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines time to work.
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.
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
