Travel Clinic

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.

Please note we are only able to give vaccines that are free of charge through the NHS. If you require vaccine such as Rabies, you will need to contact either:

  • BMC Travel Clinic in Ashford - 01233 503666
  • Travel Clinic at Warders Medical Centre, Tonbridge - 01732 770088

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

 Europe & Russia  North America
 Central America  South America
 Carribean  Africa
 Middle East  Central Asia
 East Asia  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.
