Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, our expert team can provide detailed up-to-date information and a broad range of travel vaccinations to keep you well while you’re overseas.

What are travel vaccinations?

Travel vaccines or immunisations, are injections travelers can get before visiting certain countries or parts of the world, that help protect them from serious diseases.

Why do I need vaccination?

Travelling to different climates and environments overseas can expose you to diseases and many other health risks. Taking the time to be aware of the dangers and how to stay healthy is the best way to protect your health.

What vaccinations do I need when travelling abroad?

Travel vaccinations vary depending on:

  • The country you are visiting, and in many cases a part of that country
  • The climate or the time of the year when you’ll be travelling
  • The length of your travel
  • Whether you are staying in an urban or rural area
  • Your age and overall health conditions

The most common required travel vaccinations. How to protect yourself quickly and easily.

The most common diseases, which aren’t present in the UK, and require a vaccination are:

  • Yellow Fever
  • Malaria
  • Rabies
  • Dengue Fever

Plan ahead for travel

Some vaccinations and immunisations can take time to work, so the sooner you’re able to be seen, the better your chances of staying fit and well while you’re away.

If possible, arrange your appointment at least six to eight weeks before you’re due to travel. Some vaccinations need to be given well in advance to allow your body to develop immunity.
