Not all travel vaccinations are available free on the NHS, even if they are recommended for travel to a certain area.
The following travel vaccines are available free on the NHS:
- polio (given as a combined diphtheria/tetanus/polio jab)
- hepatitis A
These vaccines are free because they protect against diseases thought to represent the greatest risk to public health if they were brought into the country.
What Travel Vaccinations can I get at Station House Surgery?
We only provide travel vaccines that are provided free on the NHS (as outlined above)
