Travel is more than choosing a destination from a brochure; it is also about preparation to ensure that you have the most enjoyable time possible. Certain areas of the world, including South East Asia, Sub Saharan Africa, South America and even Europe, pose a risk for tourists, overseas workers and those moving abroad. The Travel Clinic at The Somerfield Hospital offers a comprehensive and fully flexible travel service including personalised travel advice and a thorough risk assessment, whether you are travelling for business or pleasure.
Travel vaccinations can provide protection against a wide range of diseases. The vaccines you need will depend on your destination. For other illnesses where vaccines are not available then other preventative measures should be taken.
Additional information is available when you visit our Travel Clinic. Please bear in mind that vaccinations can take some time to become effective, so advice should be sought as soon as your travel plans are known. Main diseases for the traveller to be aware of and protect against include:
- Cholera vaccine
- Diphtheria/ tetanus/ polio vaccine
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Hepatitis A+B
- Typhoid vaccine
- Hepatitis and typhoid vaccine
- Rabies vaccine
- Japanese encephalitis vaccine
- Tick-borne encephalitis vaccine
- Yellow fever vaccine
- Flu vaccinations
- Meningitis ACWY
Vaccination prices vary depending on the current requirements and vaccinations needed for the countries to be visited. Prices can be obtained by contacting BMI The Somerfield Hospital Travel Clinic on 01622 208 032/ 031.
