If you’re thinking about travelling, it’s essential to find out if you need any vaccination or an antimalarial for your trip.
Our travel health service provides detailed health assessments, vaccinations and other preventative treatments, as well as advice.
The UK’s childhood vaccination programme helps protect you from a number of serious diseases, however, it doesn’t include the many infectious diseases that you can contract overseas. Travelling to certain parts of the world can put you at risk of contracting infections and harmful diseases. Preventative treatment such as vaccinations will help strengthen your body’s immunity against any diseases and infections, however harmful.
Wide range of vaccines and preventative treatments
It is advised that you should seek travel health advice at least eight weeks before you plan to travel. This is because some vaccinations will need to be given in advance. The Travel Health Clinics at BMI Healthcare offer the following vaccines and preventative treatments:
|Hepatitis A + B
|Hepatitis A & Typhoid
|Dip, Tetanus & Polio
In addition to offering vaccinations, BMI Travel Clinics also offer personalised travel advice to ensure you are prepared for your trip. We offer a comprehensive risk assessment to ensure you are given all the vaccinations you need, a record of your vaccinations and vaccination certificates if it is required for your travel destination. Our travel health nursing staff will be happy to answer any queries you have about your health on holiday.
When planning your jabs you should inform your consultant if:
- You’re pregnant or you think you might be pregnant
- You’re breastfeeding
- You have a health condition that affects your immune system, such as HIV or AIDS
- You’ve had a bone marrow of organ transplant recently
- You’re receiving a treatment that affects your immune system, such as chemotherapy
