BOOK YOUR FLU VACCINATION APPOINTMENT NOW

 The GP’s at The Haven seek to encourage every eligible patient to have their free flu jab this year. Perhaps you are delaying booking an appointment until more is known about the Covid-19 booster programme, or you are hesitant because there were very few cases of flu last year and you feel fit and well at the moment? You may be waiting for more information from the government or from other reputable sources?  In any case, our sincere advice to our patients ,is that you should pre-book your flu vaccination appointment as soon as possible. 

Our receptionists are waiting to hear from you

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any Vaccinations relating to international travel you need to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.  Please book a telephone appointment to discuss this. 

Travel Vaccinations that are available on the NHS are provided free of charge to all our Patients but we cannot provide these services to any Patients that are registered as 'Temporary Residents'.

Please make an appointment six weeks before you are due to travel as you may need more than one visit for a course of Vaccinations.

Malaria tablets can be purchased over the counter at your local Pharmacy. 

We have a Travel Vaccination Form which needs to be completed for each Patient who is travelling abroad. This will assist us with our assessment of what vaccines you may require. A copy of this is below to be completed before your vaccinations.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines 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.
