Which travel vaccines are free?
Some travel vaccines are usually free on the NHS. This includes:
diphtheria, polio and tetanus boosters
hepatitis a and hepatitis b combined vaccine
Many GPs do not keep stock for these vaccines so it’s important that you check with your GP before you make an appointment. GPs may be unable to provide a full travel consultation and tell you which vaccines you need so you need to check whether your GP will be able to advise you.
Make sure you have a consultation well in advance of travel so that you can return to your GP for any additional doses you need or attend a travel clinic for any additional vaccines you need.
Vaccines you would usually need to pay for include:
hepatitis B (unless combined with hepatitis A)
yellow fever - We are a registered Yellow Fever Centre
