Travel Clinics offer affordable vaccine packages for international travellers. They provide the appropriate vaccine for the country that you are travelling to. Certified and experienced doctors administer and advise you why you need the particular vaccine and/or boosters. Vaccines help you be protected from diseases endemic in the country you wish to visit.
Check online reviews and the services offered to make sure. However, if you have an existing medical condition, it is important to be aware of any complications that may arise and our doctors are able to give you the correct advice and treatment before you go. We offer packages which can include medical tests as well as vaccines.
Vaccines are important and recommended for travellers to areas of the world where diseases are endemic and more so if you know it is in a remote area where medical help is often not available if you fall ill. Be prepared and be protected and the best protection are vaccinations. Years of research studies have informed the public of the effectiveness and importance of vaccines. Heard immunity will not protect you from diseases where the population has not necessarily been immunised through lack of money and/or opportunity. So please never assume it will be okay. Get a simple blood test to find out if you have immunity from certain diseases present in the community you plan to visit. It is quick, easy and not expensive.
The following will help explain it:
Vaccination needs for every traveller varies. It depends where you plan to visit. Our doctors in the travel clinic will guide you. They will also advise you with precautionary measures to help you if you have any pre-existing health problems.

There are simple ways to protect yourself before you travel. i.e. vaccination is definitely the first line of defence.
People should not buy anti-malarial medications abroad or purchased over the internet as they are more than likely to be fake.
50% DEET - based insect repellents should be applied regularly (according to the manufacturers' instructions).
DEET is appropriate for use in pregnancy.
If DEET is unsuitable then a proven alternative should be used instead.

No hassle, within the same building, you need look no further.
