Stay safe and healthy abroad
If you are travelling abroad you may need to be vaccinated. Please make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss the vaccinations you will need, which will depend on where you are travelling.
Our practice only offer NHS vaccines if required for travel. NHS Vaccines: Diptheria, Tetanus, Polio, Hepatitis A and Typhoid.
For Non-NHS vaccines please contact: Travel Clinic in Tunbridge Wells – 01892 222222
(The Travel Clinic only offer NHS vaccines free of charge to patients registered with Warders practice. Patients that are not registered with Warders will have to pay for HepA and Typhoid.)
It is important to make this initial appointment at least eight weeks before you travel so that the vaccines can be ordered. Unfortunately, if you give us less than 3 weeks notice we will not be able to assist you and you will need to attend a Travel Clinic.You will need a second appointment to receive the vaccinations. Your second appointment should be at least two weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription which cost more than the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
