Since the COVID-19 pandemic, people are now more aware of the importance of getting vaccinated before travelling. However, did you know a few countries will require other vaccines before you're able to go for a visit?
We offer a full range of worldwide travel vaccinations. Please contact the surgery 4- 6 weeks prior to travelling. This is to ensure the vaccination is fully activated during your time of travel.
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Yellow Fever
Start the process of vaccination well before you plan to travel. Some vaccinations take time to become effective so give yourself at least 8 weeks to protect yourself fully. An early start to the process is particularly important if you plan to travel with children. The BCG vaccination against tuberculosis (TB), for example, should be given at least 3 months before your child travels.
Certain vaccinations are compulsory. In these cases, you will need to show an International Certificate of Vaccination (record of your vaccines) in order to gain access to the country in question.
Other vaccinations are recommended and the decision is left to your own discretion, however, it makes sense to do everything you can to guard against illness and disease while you are away.
You will not need vaccinations in order to visit any European country, unless you have visited a non-European country shortly.
