Items which should not routinely be prescribed in primary care - travel vaccines by all Sub-ICB Locations

Why it matters:

NHS England guidance states:

The following vaccinations should not be prescribed on the NHS exclusively for the purposes of travel:

  • hepatitis B
  • Japanese encephalitis
  • meningitis ACWY
  • yellow fever
  • tick-borne encephalitis
  • rabies
  • BCG.

These vaccines should continue to be recommended for travel but the individual traveller will need to bear the cost of the vaccination.

For all other indications, as outlined in Immunisation Against Infectious Disease – the Green Book – the vaccine remains free on the NHS.

For guidance on when prescribing may be appropriate in some exceptional circumstances, please see the full NHS England guidance document.
