Before embarking on any overseas journey, it is vitally important to prioritise your health and well-being. Preparing well for travel includes understanding your health risks whilst away and scheduling vaccinations to protect against infectious diseases prevalent in your destination. By taking proactive steps to safeguard your health, you can minimise the risk of illness and ensure a smooth and enjoyable trip. Plan ahead, consult with our experienced travel health team and travel with confidence and peace of mind.

Travel vaccinations are essential for protecting individuals from potential health risks when exploring different parts of the world. These vaccinations serve as a preventive measure against infectious diseases that may be prevalent in specific regions, reducing the likelihood of travellers falling ill during their journey. Having up-to-date vaccinations is often a requirement for entry into certain countries, ensuring the safety of both the traveller and the local population.

Travel vaccinations is a simple yet critical step in experiencing a safer and healthier travel experience.

At Doctor Now our team are qualified to help you understand the possible risks and discuss how you can stay best protected throughout your trip. Our recommendation is to book a travel consultation at least 8 weeks before you are due to travel. Some vaccinations need to be given well in advance to allow your body to develop immunity, and others may involve more than one dose, spread over several weeks or months.
