We offer a comprehensive range of vaccinations for travellers; wherever you are going, and for whatever reason.
Some examples of patients we see at our travel clinics include: holiday-makers, aid workers, pilgrims, international commuters and workers with visa requirements.
We will review your travel plans and previous vaccination record to check if any are missing or needing a booster. We will then advise which vaccinations are absolutely essential and which are optional.
When should I start thinking about getting my vaccinations?
If it is possible, you should arrange to see your GP or travel clinic at least 8 weeks before you are due to travel. This is because your body needs time to develop an immunity. Some vaccinations also require multiple doses spread out over a number of weeks or months.
Where can I get my vaccinations?
Some travel vaccinations are available for free on the NHS: Polio, Typhoid, Hepatitis A and Cholera. Most other vaccinations will have a cost involved, and you may or may not be able to have these at your local NHS GP surgery.
If you give us a call on 0333 577 5999, we will be able to source these vaccinations for you and provide you with an up-front cost before you make your appointment. We can also provide proof of vaccination where required, at no extra cost.
It's important to mention...
When planning your travel vaccinations, you should consider your age, overall health, whether you are working as an aid worker, working in a medical setting or if you will come into contact with any animals whilst abroad. This is because you may be at a higher risk of infection under these circumstances.
If you have an immune deficiency extra care will need to be taken and our GPs will advise you accordingly. It is also important to let your GP know if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding.
Let us know your travel destinations and when you are leaving.
Our trained medical administration team will provide you with a list of vaccinations you require and which are optional, along with a quotation.
We will then book you in with one of our local GPs who will administer the vaccinations for you.
Please allow plenty of time in advance of travel, as some vaccinations require a course and may take time to become effective.
