16/09/2013

Due to a national shortage of yellow fever vaccine, we will shortly be unable to provide this vaccination for patients. Please be aware that the manufacturer has advised us that we will not be able to order new supplies of Yellow Fever vaccine until January 2014. There may be some supplies in private travel clinics, but these will be similarly affected.  Please be mindful of this when booking your travel appointment for your holiday.

 

The NHS Choices website suggests that  you should consider vaccination if you are vising the following countries.  This guidsance is subject to change, and patients should consult the website for further guidance.
