It’s easy to make a pre-travel health appointment in London
Booking an appointment for travel health advice or travel vaccinations at one of NX Healthcare’s London Travel Clinics couldn’t be easier. Choose the travel clinic nearest your home or workplace to see what appointments are available. Make one appointment per person travelling with you.
We recommend a travel health consultation six to eight weeks before you go
We’d like you to see our travel healthcare professionals six to eight weeks before your departure. This is because we need to administer multiple doses of some vaccines – for example, the Japanese encephalitis (JE) vaccine is given in two doses four weeks apart and for best protection, the course needs completing at least seven days before potential exposure to the virus that causes JE.

Where can I get travel vaccines in London?
NX Healthcare travel clinics owns and runs health centres staffed by healthcare professionals who specialise in travel health. We have several conveniently located clinics in and around London where you can get advice and shots for your trip abroad.
You should get travel health advice six to eight weeks before you travel. But we can help you with same-day travel health appointments and we can provide travel jabs last minute on an accelerated schedule if you are travelling in an emergency or want to take a last-minute break.
Will I need any vaccine boosters for my holiday?
To find out whether you need any vaccines for your trip abroad, it’s best to get a consultation with a travel health nurse. They will ask you questions about your planned trip, including:
- travel dates
They will also have questions about your health generally and about your lifestyle. Using this information, they can work out what health risks you are likely to be exposed to and recommend vaccines and action steps you can take to protect your health and that of your loved ones.
Can I get malaria tablets in London?
NX Healthcare provides travellers from London with advice on malaria prevention. This includes a course of antimalarials and advice on when to start and stop taking your malaria tablets, supported by information about mosquito avoidance.

Our travel health service is good value for money
Some GPs do offer travel health advice, but most travel shots are not available on the NHS, so you’ll have to pay for them. Our prices are competitive with other London travel health centres. Our travel health experts can also help you get travel vaccine boosters that can increase the length of protection, offering excellent value for frequent travellers.
How do I get more information about staying safe while travelling?
There is no replacement for a consultation with a travel health expert, like the nurses and pharmacists at our travel health clinics in London. But we have a comprehensive library of travel health articles that you can browse.
We recommend that all travellers going abroad check 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.
Note that you may not be able to get travel vaccines for free on the NHS from your GP. Your GP may be able to give you written information about what vaccines and certificates are needed for your trip.
