Travel Health

We provide a full range of travel health services. This includes counseling you on all aspects of your proposed travel.

If you are planning foreign travel, you should book a consultation well in advance about necessary vaccines, malaria prescriptions and other medical advice regarding your destinations. Requirements for any country can change according to various outbreaks. Many parts of Europe, Australia and North America do not need particular vaccinations for travel, but if you are unsure it is best to come and discuss this with the doctor. You should bring a detailed itinerary and any history of previous vaccinations when coming for travel health consultation.

Normally you will have one detailed consultation with the doctor who will discuss recommended vaccinations, anti-malaria medication if necessary and other relevant advice about travelling safely and staying well abroad. You may then return for any recommended vaccinations to the doctor or nurse.

Clifden Medical Practice is a designated yellow fever centre, therefore we can provide this certification to persons who need this vaccine and receive it from our doctors. A certificate of yellow fever vaccination is obligatory if this disease is endemic in the country you are travelling to. However, there are also restrictions in adjacent countries, where you may have less risk of contracting the disease, but may be refused entry without a certificate of yellow fever vaccination. You should bring a detailed itinerary for your travels when coming for travel health consultation.
