Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the Travel Nurse and complete a Foreign Travel Form. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. The form is available to collect from our reception.

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 return your completed Foreign Travel Form as early as possible - at the latest 48 hours before your appointment - as these vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your appointment with the Travel Nurse needs to be at least 4 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.

There are some vaccines that are not available at St Helens Medical Centre: Yellow Fever, Rabies, Japanese Encephalitis, Cholera or Hepatitis B. These are available at Occupational Health St. Mary's Hospital.

Malaria treatment is only available by private prescription.
