If you’re planning to travel, it’s important to arrange your travel vaccinations early.

 

Common vaccines required for travel throughout Asia, Africa and America include Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Tetanus, Diphtheria and Polio. Many vaccines must be given at least two weeks before travel. Some must be given even sooner, so please ensure you contact us as soon as possible once you make your travel plans. KMC provide all travel vaccines and is also an  approved Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.

We also provide general travel health advice and prescriptions for prophylactic medications (e.g. Malaria) if necessary. Illnesses may be caused by contaminated food or water, poor personal hygiene or infected insects. We can also advise which medications might be useful to bring as a precaution.​

Please complete this form here prior to the nurse calling you in for your appointment.
