Dear Healthcare Professional:

 

We have recently opened a travel clinic in our pharmacies at;

Whalley Range Pharmacy

1 Whalley Range, Blackburn

 Tel: 01254 54988

Buncer Lane Pharmacy

6 Preston Old Road, Blackburn

Tel: 01254 690496

 

Our Pharmacists have completed extensive training and are now accredited to administer all the necessary vaccinations commonly required by holiday makers who visit exotic destinations. The clinic is run on an appointment basis as a private service for patients.

We appreciate the significant pressures placed on practices sometimes makes it difficult for the nurses to provide appointments for travel vaccinations required by certain patients. Especially in relation to last minute travellers.

We hope this service enables you to suggest a convenient alternative when the practice is unable to provide the vaccinations.

Below you will find a list of vaccinations we offer and a full range of anti-malarial tablets treatments required by travellers who visit high risk malaria areas.

VACCINE

Hepatitis A

Hepatitis B

DTP (Diptheria, Tetanus, Polio)

Typhoid

Rabies

Cholera

Meningitis – ACWY, Bexsero

Japanese Encephalitis

Tick-borne Encephalitis

Yellow Fever

 

ANTIMALARIALS

Malarone

Malarone Paediatric

Doxycycline

Lariam

Chloroquine

Paludrine

We are also able to provide appointments on the SAME DAY; available in case of emergency.

(* Subject to the availability of the pharmacist)

We request that patients bring any past vaccination records they may have or obtain a written vaccination record from their GP. Our pre-travel consultation will assess the impact of any pre-existing medical conditions on their vaccine requirements. We would provide the practice with a record of any vaccinations administered.

Our competitive pricing and easily accessible locations makes us an ideal alternative when the practice is unable to accommodate the patient. Call us today and speak to our pharmacist for further details.

Kind regards
