Overseas travel advice

The Student Medical Centre can help you with overseas travel advice, including;

Travel Vaccinations

Our Nurses are up to date and well informed on this subject. Please make an appointment with the nurse 3-4 months prior to travel where possible and complete a travel questionnaire to ensure that your full immunization programme can be completed before you leave the country, otherwise you may not be fully protected.

Talbot Medical Centre is an authorised Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.

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 travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Please note that, other than private Yellow Fever vaccinations, we are only able to offer NHS travel vaccinations, i.e. Hepatitis A, Typhoid and Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio and that all other travel vaccinations are private and students will need to find an alternative travel clinic for these. 

Important: Please download and complete the travel risk assessment form and return to the Medical Centre well ahead of time so that the nurse can identify which vaccinations are required, deliver the NHS ones and allow you time to book into a private travel clinic. Also visit www.fitfortravel.co.uk, which is a highly regarded site for travel experts in identifying appropriate vaccinations and you are encouraged to identify which ones you will are appropriate to you. This will ensure that the practice nurse has suitable time to administer the vaccinations at your appointment.
