Travel Vaccines

We aim to offer travel vaccines at the Practice where possible after discussion with a practice nurse and these include:

 

  • Tetanus

Tetanus is a serious but rare condition caused by bacteria getting into a wound.

Tetanus bacteria can survive for a long time outside the body, and are commonly found in soil and the manure of animals such as horses and cows. If the bacteria enter the body through a wound, they can quickly multiply and release a toxin that affects the nerves, causing symptoms such as muscle stiffness and spasms.
