You should get advice at least eight weeks before you're due to travel, as some jabs need to be given well in advance.

Whether you need any jabs will depend on:

  • the country you're travelling to
  • whether you have any medical conditions
  • whether you're taking any medication

Speak to your GP before having any vaccinations if:

  • you're pregnant
  • you think you might be pregnant
  • you're breastfeeding


Not all travel vaccinations are free and some will be prescribed on a private prescription due to them not being provided on the NHS, you can see which vaccinations will incur a charge here;
