Travel vaccinations are necessary precautions to immunise you against infectious and potentially incurable diseases found overseas. In some situations, proof of vaccination must be provided before entry is permitted and failure to do so can result in quarantine, immunisations or entry being denied.

Whether you need vaccinations for your trip depends on various factors, including your destination, the duration of your stay, your health history, and any specific activities you plan to engage in. It’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional or a travel health specialist to assess your individual needs and determine the necessary vaccinations and other preventative measures for your travel destination.

Some countries require proof of vaccination (for example, for polio or yellow fever vaccination), which must be documented on an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) before you enter or when you leave a country.

We can provide personalised recommendations based on your itinerary and medical history to ensure your health and safety during your trip.

Specific vaccinations are recommended for certain destinations based on the prevalent diseases in those areas.

Some examples of these vaccinations are Yellow Fever, Meningitis ACWY, Hepatitis B, Japanese Encephalitis and Rabies.

If you choose to travel unvaccinated and get sick whilst abroad due to a vaccine-preventable tropical disease, you may not be covered by your travel insurance.

Whether you need to have travel vaccines again depends on various factors including:

  1. Duration since your last vaccination.
  2. Type of vaccine
  3. Specific travel destinations
  4. Changes in health recommendations.
  5. Your individual Health Status

Your local General Practitioner (GP) can often provide many commonly recommended vaccines such as Hepatitis A, Typhoid and Influenza (flu). However, certain travel vaccines may not be readily available at every GP practice due to factors such as vaccine availability, storage requirements, and the specific expertise of the healthcare providers.

Not all vaccinations are provided on the NHS. Vaccines required for destinations further afield than Europe are often considered private vaccines. While your GP may offer these vaccines, they typically come with a charge. Our advice service enables you to explore the most cost-effective options for each recommended vaccine. This information empowers you to seek out the best value for your vaccination needs.

By using our advice service, you can find the cheapest option for each recommended vaccine. It helps to have the information to look around for the more cost-effective options.
