Required Travel Vaccines
Certain countries have mandatory vaccination requirements for entry, to protect their citizens from the importing or spreading of certain diseases.
Those countries that require this are either countries where the disease is already present or where they have the potential to occur. For example India, where they have the specific species of mosquito which act as hosts for the yellow fever virus but don’t have any actual cases of yellow fever. Proof is in the form of an international vaccination certificate.
Yellow Fever Certification
Various countries demand a yellow fever certificate from all travellers on entry, others only if you are coming from an infected country. The requirements are complex, see one of our trained experts for a travel health assessment. Yellow Fever, although rare is often a fatal illness. Vaccination, will confer immunity for life.
It is a live vaccination and cannot be routinely administered to travellers who are immunocompromised, unless the benefit outweighs the risks
Polio is caused by a virus found in your gastrointestinal system, which spreads via an oral-faecal mechanism often generally because of poor hygiene.
Travellers visiting high risk countries for Polio such as Pakistan and Nigeria may be required to show proof of inoculation.
Our travel health clinicians will provide you with the latest recommendations from Travax.
Routine Travel Vaccines
Routine vaccinations are those where you should have already completed the full initial course during childhood/adolescence. Please always bring your vaccination record to your travel clinic appointment, so we can review your vaccine history and make sure that you have received all your routine inoculations as a child.
Routine immunisations include-
- MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
- Meningitis C
Where necessary we can offer a vaccination jab, within a few days of departure. We look to provide the nest protection possible within the limitations of your individual travel schedules.

This assessment will take account of various factors including age, type of holiday, activities , duration, past medical history, current medication, previous reactions to vaccines and future travel plans.
