Travel Information


Vaccinations for the following conditions are usually available free on the NHS.

  • Diphtheria, polio and tetanus booster
  • Hepatitis A - some combined vaccines, such as combined hepatitis A and B

These vaccines protect against diseases which are considered to be the greatest risk to public health.

Currently there is a global shortage of Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B vaccine. We have limited stocks and are following strict guidelines as to how travel patients receive vaccinations during the shortage. More information on the global shortage can be found on the Nathnac website detailed below.
