Vacccination Fees

We strongly recommend that you seek professional advice regarding any vaccinations required for your holiday or employment purposes. This can be provided by the Practice Nurses or at private clinics. You must ensure you have your vaccinations in good time for your holiday or employment purposes in order for them to take effect. Please contact the Surgery for advice, or refer to the Surgery website for advice.

The NHS provides some, but not all vaccinations for people travelling abroad and for employment purposes.

Those vaccines which are provided free of charge by the NHS are;

  • Typhoid
  • Poliomyelitis
  • Hepatitis A
  • Diphtheria / Tetanus / Polio

Other vaccines are not funded by the NHS; therefore we have to make the following charges:

  • Hepatitis B – full course (adults) –      £115
  • Hepatitis B – full course (children) –  £103
  • Hepatitis B – booster (adults) –            £41
  • Hepatitis B – booster (children) –       £37
