Advice for Travellers

Travel Immunisations

If you are planning a trip abroad and require any vaccinations, please note that any vaccine needs to be administered at least 2 weeks before travelling.

If you have a complex travel itinerary or if you are travelling beyond Europe or for longer than 2 weeks, we strongly recommend that you make an appointment with a Private Travel Clinic for advice and possible private vaccinations. We no longer offer private travel vaccines at Ammonite.

NHS Vaccinations

The following vaccines are available under the NHS:

  • Typhoid
  • Tetanus/Diptheria/Polio
  • Hepatitis A
  • Cholera

Please ensure that you have any consultation at least 8 weeks in advance of any travel so that you have enough time to have scheduled vaccinations if required.  Please do not ask for these vaccines to be processed urgently as we do not currently have the resources to provide such a service.

You can book to have these under the NHS using using eConsult, but please note this will be booked as a ROUTINE appointment (usually appointments up to 8 weeks in advance). If you are not able to wait please arrange to have these vaccines privately. If your travel plans will allow you to wait, please bring evidence of the need for these vaccines from the private travel clinic and we will be happy to process these for you.

Before requesting an appointment, please use the resources below to check the vaccination recommendations for the countries you are travelling to and include these in your eConsult. Please do a separate eConsult for every member of your party requiring a vaccination.

If you are unable to make this appointment, please call 01308 421 896 as soon as possible to rearrange.

Further Information

We recommend that all travellers visit a travel website for further information on suggested vaccinations and schedules. Please see below for suggested websites.

Travelling in Europe

Your rights & EU rules

If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.

As an EU national, you enjoy the right of free movement. This means you’re entitled to travel, work and live in another EU country. If you’re a citizen of a Schengen country – which is most EU countries – you’re also free to travel to other Schengen countries without the need for border checks.

As an EU national, you can also benefit from EU-wide passenger rights for travel into, out of or within the EU by air, rail, bus/coach or ship. You can travel with pets and other animals in the EU provided you comply with the rules (pet passports). There are EU limits on taking alcohol, tobacco or cash with you to another EU country. Each EU country can set its own limits or restrictions, so check before you go.
