Travel Vaccination Prices
Not all travel vaccinations are available free on the NHS, even if they're recommended for travel to a certain area. Newquay Health Centre is only able to provide the free NHS travel vaccinations, which are;
- polio (given as a combined diphtheria/tetanus/polio jab)
These vaccines are free because they protect against diseases thought to represent the greatest risk to public health if they were brought into the country.
Any non-NHS travel vaccinations or malaria prophylaxis would need to be sourced via a private Travel vaccination centre, many of the local pharmacies are now offering travel services.
You'll have to pay for travel vaccinations against:
- hepatitis B
- Japanese encephalitis
- meningitis vaccines
- tick-borne encephalitis
- tuberculosis (TB)
Yellow fever - Yellow fever vaccines are only available from designated centres.
Malaria prophylaxis - Please arrange via a private travel vaccination centre.
