There are a number of disease prevention injections that are on offer for when you travel abroad, some are compulsory and some are optional, depending on the country/location you are travelling too.
Pick your destination and the NHS website fitfortravel will tell you which jabs you need.
Once you’re aware of the injections you need for travel book an appointment at your local doctors and specify you’d like to see a nurse. The nurse will then advise and inject you.
