Travel Clinic

Our practice nurses are available by appointment to offer medical advice regarding travel and vaccinations where appropriate to registered patients only. Please submit a request with all your requirements via our online portal or speak to the Reception Team. Once we have all the necessary information, your notes will be analysed by one of our qualified Nurses, who are trained in travel health management.

Do plan ahead - don't leave your vaccinations until the last minute. Please allow at least six weeks before you travel.

  • Most vaccinations are best given 6 weeks prior to travel, if you have less time than this before you travel, we will aim to give you the necessary vaccinations. We require at least 6 weeks before you travel otherwise you may have to attend one of the private travel clinics listed below (please note charges will apply and they vary depending on provider)

The Cambridge Travel Clinic

  • Some vaccinations cannot be given on the same day as others if they are ‘live’ vaccines; this may mean that two or more visits to the Health Centre are required.
  • Some vaccinations have a charge, because the NHS does not fund them. Please note we no longer offer Yellow Fever vaccinations. To find out more visit: Private, Professional Fees and Certificates
  • Payment will be expected in full on the day of vaccination.
  • Malaria medication may be required for certain destinations. The Nurse will inform you if you need to do this. This is prescribed on a Private prescription, and the cost will vary depending on which medication you are prescribed and for how long. Please book a telephone consultation with our prescribing pharmacist within the surgery to receive this if required. When you speak to the prescribing pharmacist, you need to know exactly where you are going and for how long. If your travel plans are complex (going in and out of Malaria prone areas) then the prescribing pharmacist may need to see an itinerary.
  • Japanese B Encephalitis is not given at this Health Centre, if you require this you will have to go to one of the private Travel Clinics. A charge will be made.
  • If you have any further queries please speak to a member of the Reception Team.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign 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


It is important to make the 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.
