It is important that you allow sufficient time for your travel vaccinations to be given and take effect; you should therefore make your first appointment with as much time as possible prior to your date of travel.
Rowden Surgery is a registered yellow fever centre and can give yellow fever vaccinations to patients not registered at the practice.
Some vaccinations are available on the NHS, but many incur a fee or occasionally may need to be obtained by a private prescription from the surgery for dispensing at the chemist. The private prescription is £20.00 per patient per prescription, payable upon collection; the chemist will also charge for dispensing the drug.
Should a fee be required, you will need to pay this prior to attending for your appointment.
