Travel abroad is so common nowadays that it is often easy to forget the necessary precautions. Make sure you don't turn your holiday into a horror story.
Consult your doctor or practice nurse at least two months before departure (the receptionist can advise you as to whom you should see). They will advise you what vaccinations are required and what medications you may need. Make sure you have adequate medical insurance. If you are visiting an EEC country you will need form E111.
Information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:
It is important to make the 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 travelto allow the vaccines to work.
