Travel Vaccinations from 1st April

From Friday 1 April 2022, the way you access travel vaccinations will change. Vaccinations previously delivered at GP practices will be the responsibility of NHS Lanarkshire.


These vaccines are:

  •  Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Hepatitis A and typhoid combined
  • Cholera
  • Revaxis (polio / diphtheria / tetanus)


The consultation and vaccination will continue to be free of charge for people who live in Lanarkshire or who are registered with a Lanarkshire GP practice. For information on the travel vaccination service in other health boards, visit www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk


If you need any of the above vaccines for travel, you can now contact participating community pharmacies directly and staff will advise you of the process.


Please make sure you know the vaccination requirements of the country you are travelling to, and allow for sufficient time to be vaccinated. You can check this at www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk before arranging your appointment at a pharmacy. Please note, this service does not include the covid-19 vaccine.
Some travellers may need vaccines and anti-malarials which are not provided free of charge through this NHS service. Pharmacies may provide this additional service, however there will be a charge for it.
