Disease Risks

Disease Risks

Personal assessment is important as not all vaccines recommended for certain countries are appropriate for every person.  A personal assessment helps you to avoid unnecessary vaccinations which, while not harmful, are costly.

What vaccines and medicines are ACTUALLY needed vary from traveller to traveller even going to the same country! 

Disease risk changes rapidly, even on a daily basis.  Our travel health team keeps up to date on global outbreaks of illness and the most appropriate measures for prevention and treatment.  

During an appointment our travel health team assesses your unique health and vaccine history along with your itinerary to determine the best protective measures for you.
