The Practice does not have a nurse trained to give patients travel advice. Therefore we cannot give you advice as to which vaccinations you may need to properly protect you on your holiday.
However, our registered patients may receive free of charge:
- Hepatitis A [infectious hepatitis] - first and second/booster dose (6-12 months after first dose)
- Combined hepatitis A and B – all doses
- Typhoid - first and any booster doses
- Combined hepatitis A and typhoid - first dose (second dose is with Hepatitis A alone)
- Tetanus, diphtheria and polio as given in the combined Td/IPV vaccine6
We give these vaccinations at the patient’s request
We cannot accept any responsibility as to whether any or all of the above vaccinations will give the patient adequate cover for the areas they may visit.
Travel Advice can be obtained from the MASTA clinic is at Newport Pagnell, Queens Ave, MK16 8QT, tel: 0330 100 4200. They charge £20 per person if no vaccines or antimalarial are purchased.
MASTA Travel health
Their travel health specialist nurses provide individual, personalised travel advice. Again they need details of any medication being taken, any previous vaccination history and medical history.
Children of all ages can be advised. Children aged up to 15yrs must be accompanied by a parent/guardian who can complete the consultation on their behalf. Children aged 16-18 must attend the consultation themselves.
MASTA will provide a print out of individual, personalised advice given, this needs to have the clients details at the top. They can bring this to the surgery prior to any appointment for vaccines.
