VACCINATIONS FOR FOREIGN TRAVEL AT THE GREEN ST GREEN MEDICAL CENTRE
All vaccines are now available at the surgery and most are free of charge. We are a registered Yellow Fever Centre.
The following vaccinations, however, are not wholly available on the Health Service and you will be asked to pay the fee shown in addition to any prescription charge. Due to the high cost of these vaccines and because they have to be ordered individually we regret that we shall have to ask for prepayment at the time of booking your appointment.
We will advise you which are necessary for your trip.
