Travel vaccinations are outside the normal GP provision under the GMS contract. We do not run a Travel clinic and must refer to the local Travel Clinics.
As these can need to be given over a specific timeframe, we advise patients to contact the travel clinics for advice as soon as they've booked their holiday.
The clinic will advise on which vaccines are available on the NHS, and which must be paid for.
Please contact the local Travel Clinic below.
Level 2, Lisburn Health Centre Tel - 028 9250 1281
Ensure you arrange your appointment well in advance of travel to avoid disappointment, as this service is usually booked several weeks ahead.
After seeing the travel clinic, they should give you written note of any vaccinations you need to get from us, and/or specific antimalarials recommended for you - as such, if several members of a family are going, they will need to bring individual recommendations from the Travel clinic.
Please note, due to the risk of giving the wrong vaccine, we will not give any vaccines unless you come with clear, written instructions of the vaccines needed.
