Don’t wait to book a pre-travel health consultation
We recommend getting a fit-for-travel consultation six to eight weeks before you leave the UK. We’d like you to make one appointment for each person in your travel party. If you have complex health needs or your trip is long or multi-destination, we can give you two appointments back-to-back at our travel health centre in Manchester.

Where in Manchester can I get a health certificate for Hajj or Umrah?
Come to us for the vaccines and certificates you need for pilgrimages to Saudi Arabia. We can organise a proof of vaccination certificate that you need to get a visa for travel to Saudi Arabia for Hajj or Umrah.
Can I get travel shots before my flight at Manchester Airport?
It’s best to start getting your travel vaccines six to eight weeks before you travel, rather than on the day of your flight. This is because some vaccines are not effective for a few days after they have been given. And you may need more than one dose of some vaccines.
You can’t count on there being facilities for travel health at the airport. But NX Healthcare’s travel health clinic is conveniently located in the centre of Manchester. We have plenty of appointments for travel health consultations, and you can book online using your phone, tablet or computer.
How do you get best value for money on travel vaccines?
We monitor the prices other pharmacies and travel clinics charge for travel shots. This ensures our vaccine prices are competitive.
Many travel vaccines give years of protection, so you don’t have to get vaccinated for each trip. Other vaccines can be boosted to prolong the protection offered.
If you bring your vaccine records when you come for your travel health appointment, our adviser can quickly and easily see if you are already protected from some travellers’ diseases.
Can I do travel health research myself?
There are resources available that you can use to learn more about the risks at your destination. We recommend sites like TravelHealthPro and the NHS information about travel vaccines.
All travellers should use the country-specific travel advice issued by the Foreign Office in planning their trip abroad.
Having said that, travel health information is complex and ever-changing. If you misinterpret the information, you may cause yourself un-necessary anxiety, or put your health at risk. Our travel health advisers have access to professional resources, and have the skills and experience to interpret the data into steps that travellers can take to protect their health.
Are travel shots free on the NHS?
Some GPs might offer an NHS travel vaccination service. But you cannot get NHS travel vaccines for all common travellers’ diseases. And you may have to wait a while for a travel health appointment with your GP. NX Healthcare can offer travel health appointments in the next few days at your convenience.
Can I buy malaria tablets in Manchester?
We stock most kinds of malaria pills and we can tell you which antimalaria drugs are best for you. Some people need to use a particular kind of malaria tablet for health reasons. And not all malaria drugs are right for every region. We can help you to work out when to stop and start your antimalarials, too.
We will advise you on the best science-based methods to avoid mosquito bites to support the action of your course of antimalarials.
