Q: Why is vaccination important? 

Travelling broadens the mind, but unfortunately it can also raise your risk of contracting certain diseases.

An appointment at Travel Klinix guarantees you time with a specialist nurse or doctor, who can advise you on the specific risks you may encounter during your travel. 

Their risk assessment will consider your  destination, trip duration, planned activities and your medical history / previous vaccination history.

 Q: How far in advance should I book my appointment?

It is always better to book your appointment as soon as possible. 

In order to protect you against disease effectively, some vaccinations need to be administered up to 4 weeks prior to travelling. However, most vaccines have some effect even for the last minute traveller. So it always better to have a vaccine than not at all. Some vaccines may also require more than one dose to be administered over a scheduled period of time.  Your nurse or doctor will advise you on this. 

 Q: What does the consultation fee cost…and include?

There is a consultation fee of £25 for a 15-30-minute full travel risk assessment, but this is waived if you  purchase any vaccine or other product to the same value.

The fee includes specialist travel advice and administration of any required vaccines or medication. It becomes payable at the end of your consultation.

Q: How much are the vaccines?

All prices are listed here. We are committed to offering our customers a high quality service at very competitive prices.

Q: What do I need to bring to my appointment?

It is very helpful if you can bring with you any evidence of previous vaccinations, either from your GP or other clinics.

Q: Anything I need to do in advance of my appointment?

The Travel Klinix risk assessment form is issued to all new patients. The form is sent to you via your appointment confirmation  email.

It is basic, quick and easy to complete, but helps us to identify specific risks and the ways in which these risks can be minimised.

You can complete the form electronically and send it to us via email, or bring it with you when you come for your first appointment. Alternatively you can fill a risk assessment form here at Travel Klinix before your appointment. 

Q: What do I get after I have been seen?

At your appointment, you will receive vaccinations and anti-malaria tablets if needed. We then send you proof of vaccine and receipt of your payment via email.

We also  issue certain vaccination certificates that are required as proof of vaccination, for example yellow fever and meningitis ACWY.

We can issue fit for travel certificates, medical visas and medical letters if required. 

We also can support your other medical needs; we do blood testing, ECGs, medical assessments and can arrange further investigations such as X-rays or scans if required. 

Q: How can I pay?

We take all major debit / credit cards, cheques and cash.
