Travel Clinic

If you are travelling abroad you may need immunisations. To find out if you need any vaccinations, we will complete a form over the telephone with you and advise you accordingly.

Please Note: Most vaccines need to be given 2-4 weeks before you travel and some may require boosters. So it is in your best interest to book an appointment 6-8 weeks before the date of travel, if possible. We cannot guaruntee you a travel clinic appointment but pharmacy services are also available.

Immunisation for travel is not a service funded by the NHS. Some vaccines for travel are available on the NHS and some are not. There will be a charge applied to non-NHS vaccines. The reason for this is that we have to buy all the vaccines, but are only able to reclaim the costs of those available on the NHS.

We are aware of letters being sent out by NHS England with an invite to have your COVID vaccination at Blackburn Cathedral.
If you do not wish to take up this offer for any reason, please wait for our phone call to invite you to book an appointment here at the health centre.
At the moment we have no timescale, but please be aware we will contact you with an appointment as soon as we possibly can.
