Make your appointment for travel vaccines today

At your first travel health appointment, we’ll take some information and make some recommendations. It may even be possible to have the first doses of some shots at your first travel health appointment, although you may have to return to get further doses of some vaccines.

You can make one appointment for each person in your group. For complex health needs and expeditions or longer trips, please make back-to-back appointments.

Appointments for travel health advice at the last minute

Don’t worry if you are travelling sooner than six to eight weeks: we can still help with safe travel advice. And it is possible to give some multi-dose vaccines on an accelerated schedule. Just let us know when you’re travelling and we’ll work out a health regime that will give you the best protection possible.

What should I bring to my travel health appointment

At your first travel health appointment, the adviser will ask some questions about you and about your planned trip abroad. They will use this information to decide what health risks you will face while travelling. It can be helpful to bring some info about your health and your trip to your travel health appointment. This includes:

  • vaccine records
  • travel health certificates
  • itinerary information
  • activities you have planned
  • accommodation

If you’re travelling for work, we’d like to see any information from your occupational health department. And if you’ve seen your GP for travel health advice, we’d like to see what they recommended.

What if I need antimalarial meds?

Malaria is a tropical disease that is caused by a parasite that is transmitted by mosquitoes. malaria can be fatal, and it may take a very long time to recover from malaria. To avoid catching malaria, we recommend you take steps to avoid mosquito bites. And we may recommend a course of antimalarials. These are drugs that, should you be exposed, will stop the malaria parasite taking hold.

You often need to start taking antimalarials before you arrive in an area where malaria is endemic, and carry on taking them after you’ve left. Our travel health experts can recommend the right malaria pills for your trip, and they can tell you when to start and stop taking them.

It’s best to see a travel health nurse or pharmacist before you leave the UK, but here are some recommended resources to back up our advice.

All travellers going abroad should take a look at the country-specific travel advice issued by the Foreign Office. We also recommend TravelHealthPro, which is a library of information from the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC). And the NHS has some information about travel vaccines.
