As from August 2019 The Riverside Practice will no longer be offering Private Travel Vaccinations.
For advice and administration of holiday vaccines, please contact a private travel clinic.
We advise you to approach a private travel clinic early as some vaccinations are courses that are required to be given over a few days/weeks.

However, some vaccines are still available on the NHS:
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.
