See a travel health expert six to eight weeks before leaving

It’s best to start your travel health regime in plenty of time. Most people make their first travel health appointment six to eight weeks before their departure date. This is because some shots need to be given in multiple doses spaced days or weeks apart. for example, the yellow fever shot needs to be given at least ten days before arrival at a destination where yellow fever is endemic. You may also need to get a yellow fever certificate to obtain your visa, too.

We can also help with emergency malaria prophylaxis.

What travel vaccines should I get for my trip?

Our travel health nurses will ask some questions at your travel health appointment and then use the latest data to recommend vaccines to help keep you healthy while travelling.

Many travellers visiting tropical regions need to take antimalarials. If you’re not sure about whether or not you’ll be exposed to malaria on your trip, ask the travel health advisers at our Leicestershire-based travel clinic. We can help you find the right malaria pills for your destination.

You’ll need to back up malaria prophylaxis with mosquito avoidance techniques. Our advisers are well-versed in the latest evidence-based methods that will protect you from mosquito bites and the malaria parasites they carry.
