If you are travelling abroad, make sure you are vaccinated against the vaccine preventable diseases and have your medication for malaria cover, if necessary.
Depending on where you are going to, you may need the following vaccinations:
- Hepatitis A vaccine
- Hepatitis B vaccine
- Polio vaccine
- Tetanus vaccine
- Diphtheria vaccine
- Yellow Fever vaccine
- Rabies shot
- Typhoid vaccine
We recommend commencing your travel vaccinations at least 6 weeks prior to travel. Some vaccinations require 3 doses (Hep B, Rabies) so you may need to start sooner.
Don’t be put off if you’ve left it later than 6 weeks as partial cover is better than no cover at all and a ‘short course’ can be offered for travel vaccinations requiring more than one dose (1 month prior to travel).
Please see our Fees section for a list of costs. If you need further advice on what travel vaccinations you require for your destination, we would recommend taking a look at http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home.aspx for some extra information about vaccinating before you travel. Alternatively, please phone us on 01 6798181 for further information.
Travel vaccination appointments can be made anytime on any day of the week, just advise the receptionist that the appointment is for travel vaccinations as a half hour appointment is necessary.
