The most important initial step, prior to international travel, is seeing your health advisor for a travel risk assessment. Vaccinations, work by stimulating your immune system to produce antibodies without causing infection. Immunological memory, persists for life, therefore it is generally unnecessary to restart a vaccine course.

However, the levels of antibody often wane with time depending on the vaccine, so boosters will often be required, to re-stimulate your immune memory.

Some vaccinations courses, for example rabies (3 doses -Day 0, 7, 21) require multiple doses separated over a number of weeks. It is therefore prudent to arrange your initial consultation 4-6 weeks prior to travel, especially if the trip is rural in nature or to a high risk region.

We have categorised our vaccines into Highly recommended and Sometimes Considered.

Drinking Water – Essential Tips

Important for reducing risk of traveller’s diarrhoea, as well as other water-borne infections-hepatitis A, typhoid, polio, cholera.

  • We advise against drinking or brushing with tap water
  • Avoid using ice cubes
  • Please drink only boiled water or carbonated beverages.
  • Be wary of bottled water as safety and bottling conditions may not be adequate
  • Boiling water for 3 minutes followed by cooling, kills infection carrying organisms.
  • Filtration devices or chemical disinfection such as chlorine tablets (may not kill all parasitic infections) are also worth considering as alternative

Food Safety

Please adhere to the following advice:

  • Avoid eating unpeeled fruit
  • Please refrain from eating raw vegetables
  • Avoid drinking unpasteurised dairy products
  • Do not eat raw or rare meat, shellfish
  • Ensure that your food is always piping hot

Traveller’s Diarrhoea

Very common: 20-60% incidence depending on destination (high risk regions include: Africa, Asia, Middle East and South America).


Bacterial – Bacterial pathogens occur in 80-90% of cases. Common agents include E.coli, Campylobacter jejuni, Shigella spp and Salmonella spp.

Viruses – Norovirus, rotavirus are common causes.

Parasites – Giardia most common, others include Entamoeba.



Usually includes the sudden onset of diarrhoea (can be bloody), abdominal pain/cramps, fever, vomiting. Duration typically 3-5 days in bacterial cases, 2-3 days in viral and can be weeks in untreated parasitic infections.


Hydration – oral rehydration sachets/solutions

Antimotility drugs – provide symptomatic relief

Antibiotics – in moderate/severe cases have proven beneficial.

We advise to seek medical advice if not improving after 1-2 days, especially in the elderly/children or if symptoms of dysentery (bloody loose motions) are present.


The cholera vaccine gives cross-protection against E. coli enterotoxin. Can be effective for traveller’s diarrhea.

Animal Bites Advice

  • Avoid contact with animals especially dogs, monkeys and cats.
  • If bitten wash wound thoroughly with soapy water for 10 minutes
  • Do not suture or close wound
  • Seek urgent medical advice
  • Open water, soil and sand can harbour infection therefore

-avoid swimming in fresh water (risk schistosomiasis)

-avoid walking barefoot on sand/soil, which may be

contaminated with faeces (hookworm infection)

Insect Bite Avoidance

  • Mandatory even if vaccinated or taking antimalarials
  • Plan activities, so you can avoid insect/tick/mite infested areas and maximise preventive measures during peak hours to reduce exposure where possible
  • Day biting mosquitoes-spread infections also including dengue and yellow fever
  • Night biting mosquitoes- spread diseases including malaria and Japanese Encephalitis
  • Sandflies-cause leishmaniasis and are active from dusk until dawn
  • Tsetse fly-cause sleeping sickness and are found within vegetation and grasslands of Sub Saharan Africa, and exhibit day biting
  • Ticks/mites-cause lyme’s disease and tick borne encephalitis, and are found meadows / woodlands / grasslands / forests
  • Protective clothing-long sleeved shirts and pants, tucking in shirts / pants, closed shoes, can add permethrin to clothes for added protection
  • Check skin regularly for ticks/mites during and following outdoor activities

Travel Risk Assessment

At CityDoc you will receive a travel risk assessment, which takes into account your specific itinerary, medical history and the type of activities you likely to undertake.

Full Range of Vaccinations

Our clinics stock an extensive range of vaccinations including less commonly administered vaccines such as Japanese Encephalitis, Meningitis ACYW Vax and Cholera.

Japanese Encephalitis

This is a viral infection, which causes inflammation of the brain. It is transmitted via bites from infected mosquitos. Initially the mosquitos acquire the virus from infected animals such as pigs and then pass it onto humans. The disease is not transmitted from person to person.

It is most commonly seen in South-East Asia and the Indian subcontinent. The specific type of mosquitos which transmit this virus tend to found within rice paddy fields where they breed.

The majority of infected individuals display no symptoms. Approximately thirty percent of infected individuals will die from the disease.
