Travel Vaccinations

Why book your travel vaccinations with NX Healthcare Travel Clinics?

Which vaccinations do you need for your holiday or business trip?

Cholera is a bacterial infection of the small intestine that results in vomiting and diarrhoea, leaving the patient at risk of electrolyte imbalance and dehydration. A course of Dukoral tablets, an oral vaccine, offers 85–90% protection from cholera over two years.

Hepatitis B is a viral liver disease. Vaccination is recommended to certain groups of travellers, and a full course of the hepatitis B vaccine provides long-term protection.

Death is the usual outcome of an untreated rabies infection. Rabies is contracted from the bite, scratch or lick of an infected animal. The rabies vaccination gives you vital extra time to get medical help. The shot is particularly recommended to people going to a rabies endemic country to work with animals, or to visit a remote area.

Get medical advice about an animal bite in a region where rabies is endemic, even if you have been vaccinated.

The vaccine Stamaril protects travellers against yellow fever and can provide lifelong immunity. When you get your yellow fever shot you will be given an international certificate of yellow fever vaccination, which you will need to enter some countries. Our travel clinics are designated yellow fever vaccination centres (YFVCs).

The vaccine Revaxis protects adults from diphtheria, tetanus and polio with a single injection. We can provide a booster to extend your protection from this trio of dangerous illnesses.

Japanese encephalitis is a mosquito-borne virus that can result in permanent neurological damage. You need to complement the vaccine’s protection by practising mosquito avoidance.

Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is caught from a tick bite. Infection with this virus can result in permanent neurological damage. The TBE shot is recommended to travellers planning outdoor activities in Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and the northerly parts of Asia.

Hepatitis A is a viral illness causing inflammation of the liver. It is contracted through contaminated food and water. A course of hep A shots can provide 25 years of protection – make sure you get your follow-up dose to ensure you get best value.

Meningococcal meningitis strikes the membranes of the brain and the spinal cord. About 5-10% of meningococcal meningitis patients die, often within 48 hours. A single dose of the meningococcal meningitis vaccine confers immunity for five years.

Typhoid is a food-borne infection caused by Salmonella bacteria growing in the intestines and in the blood. It is very contagious and can be fatal. The vaccination against typhoid is available to travellers as a shot, an oral vaccine and in combination with the hep A vaccine.
