Travel clinics at Shoreditch Park Surgery
To aid the smooth running of the travel service at the surgery we would ask you to contact the surgery via telephone on 0207 739 8525 before 12pm, Monday to Friday. Inform the receptionist where you are travelling to and when and a nurse will call you back to discuss.
Travel vaccines take up to two weeks to become fully effective. Appointments can get booked up very quickly so please give yourself plenty of time to protect yourself. Some vaccines are given over the course of a month so you need to think about it about 6 weeks ahead.
We can offer a number of different travel vaccinations. Some of these are available on the NHS but there will be a charge for some. A list of these charges is available below and the charge applies to BOTH adults and children.
You may also need malaria tablets. It is therefore essential that we know exactly how long your trip is and, if you are moving around, how long you will be staying in each area, particularly if you are moving between countries. For information on malarial areas, the different anti-malaria medication options, required vaccinations for countries worldwide and general travel advice, please consult the NHS travel website: http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/
