Travel Health

We can provide expert advice, vaccinations and malaria prevention that’s tailored to you and your travel plans. If you’re about to travel outside of the UK, you may need to be vaccinated before you set off for your trip. The Childhood Vaccination Programme in the UK protects you from a number of diseases, but you may need extra vaccinations or antimalarials if you’re planning on visiting certain parts of the world.

Getting vaccinated can help prevent you from getting ill if you’re exposed to diseases which we don’t normally have in the UK. We can help you understand how to keep your risks of getting a disease low while abroad and help you work out which vaccinations and antimalarials you may want to consider depending on things like:

  • Which regions you’ll be visiting
  • What activities you’ll be doing
  • Your age and general health

Some travel vaccinations may be needed several weeks before departure. Ideally you should see us six to eight weeks before travelling, but we may still be able to help if you’re leaving sooner. By appointment only. Please speak to our Pharmacist.

It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.
