Travel Vaccinations

If you are planning on travelling abroad and think you may require vaccinations, please complete our travel questionnaire which can be printed off below or collected from reception.  Once completed, please post this back to the surgery and we will contact you to arrange an appointment (if needed).  Please be aware that some immunisations may be required up to two months prior to travel.

Churchfields Medical Practice offers country-specific advice regarding vaccination requirements; however more complex travel itineraries may require a consultation at a specialist travel clinic.

Childhood Immunisations

The immunisation programme gives vaccines to babies and children at different ages. Routine immunisation for babies begins when they are two months old. Your child will need several vaccines to protect them from infections, so it’s important to complete their immunisation programme.

The following immunisation programme is offered by Churchfields Medical Practice:
