Do you need vaccinations?

Our nurses can provide travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.

Travel Vaccination Prices

New guidelines have been issued to the surgery by Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) regarding the provision of Holiday Vaccinations.

Our nurses may provide Travel Advice to patients but some vaccinations that were previously given free of charge will now incur a fee. The charges will take effect from 1st June 2017.

Travel vaccinations that will be charged for are:

  • Hepatitis B
  • Meningitis ACWY
  • Yellow Fever
  • Japanese Encephalitis
  • Tick Borne Encephalitis
  • Rabies

Some vaccines will remain free of charge as they protect against diseases thought to represent greatest risk to public health if they were brought in the country.

Travel vaccinations that will remain free of charge are:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Tetanus, Diphtheria & Polio
  • Cholera
