From the 1st of April NHS Forth Valley’s Immunisation team will be taking over Travel Health Service for NHS Forth Valley Patients.
You can self-refer to the service using a risk assessment eform available on the immunisation page on NHS Forth Valley services page. Link is available below. You should self-refer with at least 6 weeks notice to that immunisation(s) will be effective at time of travel. If you are unable to use the eform, you should contact the immunisation administration team on 0800 130 3120.
Once you have made contact with the immunisation team, you will be assess by our Immunisation Nurses trained in Travel Health and they will recommend appropriate treatment.
If you require only free NHS vaccine, you will get the vaccination from the Immunisation team. If you require NHS and private vaccines then you will be directed to community pharmacy contractors that already offer private travel health services. These pharmacies will offer free NHS vaccines and charge patients for the private immunisations.
