CityDoc opened its first clinic in 2006, in Moorgate, central London. We have since expanded rapidly to meet the needs of our busy clients, aiming to have clinics within all the populous UK towns/cities. The clinical staff are all trained by the CityDoc Medical Director and are supported by a team of experienced general practitioners, to assist with complex cases for example involving clients with significant chronic medical conditions or those undertaking high risk travel.
Our practitioners use Travax ( an up to date NHS travel health resource designed for health care experts) to access the very latest destination specific advice. We see clients from all ages, but certain vaccines will only be suitable for specific age groups. Please see our individual vaccine pages, for detailed information regarding the restrictions, contractions, interactions and schedules for the various jabs. We have developed a comprehensive FAQ section for each individual vaccine, so our clients can be fully informed prior to attending for the consultation regarding potential suitability issues. Additionally if you have a query, please use the enquiries form.
Our Essential Vaccination Package
When you attend for our travel risk assessment, after we have taken a detailed history, our practitioners will use Travax’s database to provide advice regarding the most essential vaccines needed for your trip and also secondary vaccines which should be considered to reduce lifetime risk.
Strongly Recommended Vaccines usually include-
There are over a million cases of hepatitis each year caused by this common viral illness. It is easily spread, through contaminated food/drinks. It is very common in underdeveloped countries and in places with poor hygiene practice.
Vaccination consists of a single jab, followed by a booster 6-12 months later to confer long term protection. Please see the vaccination table below.
|Age range||Number of doses||Interval Between doses||Booster Requirement|
|From 1 year of age||2 doses||6-12 months||Booster required after 25 years for ongoing risk|
Typhoid Fever is a illness caused by the bacterium Salmonella Typhi. Humans are the only hosts for the bacterium, which is the shed via faeces. Like hepatitis A it is therefore contracted through ingested infected water/food. Symptoms of Typhoid fever include high temperature (pyrexia), abdominal pain, headaches, general malaise and reduced appetite. Typhoid vaccination provides protection for approximately three years.
|Age range||Method of Administration||Number of doses|
|From 2 years of age||Intramuscular injection to the deltoid muscle||1 dose|
Infection with the tetanus bacterium, can lead to lockjaw. The bacterium is spread through its spores which are found most commonly in soil dust. The spores gain entry through small cuts/wounds and then inflict serious damage to the central nervous system. The most serious complications can occur, when the nerves supplying the lungs are affected. The combined vaccine (Revaxis), is only suitable for clients above the age of 10 years of age. It is usually provided at the age of 14 via the NHS and lasts for ten years. Therefore adults from the age of 24 travelling to developing countries will require a booster vaccine.
|Age range||Method of Administration||Number of doses||Booster Requirement|
|From 10 yrs of age||Intramuscular injection to the deltoid muscle||1 dose||Booster required every 10 yrs if travelling to developing countries|
