Travel Vaccinations and Risk Assessment

Our GP practice offers a comprehensive travel vaccination program to help protect your health while traveling abroad. It’s important to plan ahead, as certain vaccines require time to become effective in your body. We recommend starting the vaccination process at least 6-8 weeks before your departure date to ensure adequate protection.

This timeline is crucial because some vaccines need multiple doses administered over several weeks to achieve full immunity. Additionally, your body needs time to develop antibodies in response to the vaccines. By starting early, you allow for any potential side effects or unforeseen circumstances that may arise during the vaccination process.

To ensure we can best assist you with your travel vaccination needs, we kindly ask all patients to complete the included travel vaccination form.

Please fill out the form completely and accurately. You can return the completed form in person at our clinic or send it via email to If you have any questions or need assistance with the form, feel free to contact us, and our staff will be happy to assist you.
