Immunisation & Vaccination Services

Travel Vaccination Service

Dr David Lane is a specialist in travel vaccinations and provides this service in conjunction with our Practice Nurse. We carry a stock of routine travel vaccinations including, Typhoid, Hepatitis A and B, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Polio, Rabies and Yellow Fever. It is important that you consider the vaccinations you may need as soon as you know of your intention to travel as most travel vaccinations need to be administered at least four to six weeks prior to travel.

If you are planning a trip abroad we recommend that you arrange to see the doctor well in advance of your journey to ensure that you are covered for your trip. Many parts of Europe, Australia and North America do not need particular vaccinations for travel but if you are unsure it is best to check in advance. If you are travelling within the EU remember to get your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). This can be obtained from the HSE or online at www.ehic.ie.

Patients will be notified when the vaccines are available and can book in for same. There is a €20 fee for the seasonal flu vaccine.
