If you are unsure which vaccines you require for an upcoming trip IGP provide a travel telephone consultation with a trained practice Nurse to advise on the vaccine requirements for your upcoming travel. During this appointment the Nurse will conduct a detailed assessment and create a schedule of your required vaccinations.
On booking your travel consultation you will receive an email confirming your appointment details with a link to a 'Travel Risk Assessment Form' that we ask you to completed prior to your appointment.
Time: 10 minutes
Cost: £30 (Discounted from the total cost of any future vaccines administered)
Please note that vaccine cost is the cost per dose to have the vaccine with a nurse and not a GP. There is an additional fee of £25 for the vaccine to be administered by a GP. The number of doses required indicates the number of doses for a standard course. An accelerated course can impact the number of doses required. It is strongly advised that you leave plenty of time to complete the course before your trip. Some vaccination courses, with more than one vaccine required, may take up to a month or longer and many vaccinations will not become fully effective until weeks after the course completion. The brand of vaccine we supply may also vary depending on the current supply status of a particular vaccine.
