Yellow Fever



Hepatits A


How soon before travelling should I should I contact you?
It is best to come and see us at least four weeks before you travel, especially if you need injections against Rabies, Hepatitis B, Japanese Encephalitis or Cholera. But if you just need a booster, 2 weeks (14 days) before you travel is fine.

What if I’m travelling last minute?
We recommend you come and see us, even if you’ve left it as late as a day before you travel. We can still vaccinate you and we’ll also provide important health advice as well as Malaria Tablets if you need them.

Does immunisation hurt?
Not all vaccinations are delivered by needle. But whenever they are, we bring all our considerable expertise into play to make sure it hurts as little as possible. Modern needles are so fine they hurt a lot less than the old fashioned versions used to. You shouldn’t feel anything worse than a sharp prick.

What if I have an abnormal reaction?
We don’t just vaccinate you and abandon you! If you don’t feel well afterwards or experience an abnormal reaction, phone us or come straight back in and we’ll check you out.

Do you provide vaccination certificates?
We provide certificates for Meningitis and Yellow Fever Vaccinations. Certificates are essential visa requirement for travellers to certain countries in South America and Africa.

Will I get a vaccination record card?
Yes, and it’ll act as a record of the vaccinations you’ve been given. The cards include information about how long the vaccination is effective and your booster dates. If you already have a vaccination record card, bring it to your consultation so we can check your immunisation history.
