If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to fill in the form detailing where and when you are travelling. You will then need to telephone the surgery at least 24 hours later and speak to the receptionist who should be able to advise you which vaccinations you need and whether there is a charge for them. She will also be able to make you an appointment with the practice nurse.
