What travel vaccines do I need for my holiday?
At your travel health consultation, the travel health adviser will ask some questions about your holiday or business trip. They can assess your risk of exposure to viruses and bacteria that cause common traveller’s diseases like hepatitis A and B and give you advice on reducing that risk.
They can also recommend some travel vaccines that will support your immune system in fighting off those diseases when you can’t avoid exposure. They can provide boosters for some of the shots you’ll have had as part of the UK immunisation programme.
For some destinations and trips, and even for some visa applications, you may need a certificate proving that you have been vaccinated against polio, yellow fever or meningitis. We will do our best to give up-to-date advice about entry requirements for your destination, but to avoid delays on your holiday, it’s best to double check the border requirements for your trip in the country-specific travel advice issued by the Foreign Office. Your travel agent may also have information about this, and you can check the embassy for any country you are visiting for entry and visa requirements.
What should I bring to my travel health appointment?
Please bring your itinerary, details of any activities you have planned, information about your accommodation and any vaccine records or certificates that you already have.
