Do you need vaccinations?

Here at Upton Village Surgery our Practice Nurses provide advice and interventions for travel health, including vaccinations and malaria prevention.

When travelling abroad and visiting areas where there are higher risks of contracting infectious diseases, travel vaccinations are available to offer protection for many of these diseases. Travel vaccinations will usually be required in addition to the vaccinations you receive in accordance with the UK vaccination schedule and some countries request certification to prove you have received certain vaccinations prior to allowing you entry to the country.
