Travel Vaccinations

global air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please firstly book a travel consultation at a local travel clinic. (The travel clinic will need details of any vaccinations you have previously had. This can be obtained from via patient access online services or you can request a printed copy from Reception)

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel.

Local travel clinic services are available at:

Boots Banbury - Castle Quay

Superdrug Banbury - Castle Quay

Frosts Pharmacy Banbury - Hardwick Shopping Centre

The consultant will discuss which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required and will advise you on the private vaccinations you need and their costs.

Then book a 10 minute nurse appointment with us for your NHS vaccinations.

(Please ensure you bring your travel consultation paperwork with you to your appointment. We can then add this detail onto your patient record.)
