Some vaccines may be obtained free of charge from your own GP Practice. Please contact your GP directly for more information.
Your destination, the time of year,
the type of accommodation, the length
of stay and your life style can all influence
the vaccination protection you may require.
At the Aberdeen Travel Health Clinic,
we use the TRAVAX computerised travel advice service and which are updated regularly to help assess your risks and advise you on the most appropriate course of vaccination.
Try to book your appointment 6 weeks in advance of travelling, and take as much information with you about your current travel vaccination status so that we can recommend the best course of treatment for you and your family.
We are delighted to announce that we are now offering yellow fever vaccinations at our Aberdeen Clinic. Please note that due to a shortage of yellow fever vaccinations within the UK, all bookings must be made in advance. Please call our clinic to discuss your requirements.
Travelling last minute? You may still need vaccinations. Book now...it's better late than never.
Anti Malarials - It only takes one bite!
Malaria is a potentially fatal disease, but the good news is that it's preventable.
In many parts of Africa, Asia, Central and South America you can get malaria if bitten by an infected mosquito. If you are going to visit or even travel through a malarial country, preventative measures are essential.
At our Travel Health Clinics, we will advise you about the best anti-malarials for your destination.
Travel Health Advice & Travel Accessories
The most important thing on holiday is yourself - kept in the best health possible. If you've been putting off your dental check-up, or need other routine medical matters - you should consider dealing with these before you go. Medical and dental care outside Europe and the EU may not meet EU standards and can be very expensive.
Pop in past, or call our clinic in advance of your journey to ensure you have the best travel health advice possible.
We also stock a large range of travel accessories including first aid kits, mosquito nets, insect repellants, flight socks and more. Use our in-store holiday check list to help you prepare for your journey!
