When jetting off to exotic destinations we want to make sure that our little superheroes are protected from travel-related diseases.

We can provide professional advice and administer any vaccinations that may be needed for your destination. 

 

Cholera is a disease that causes sudden, profuse, watery diarrhoea. Most cases of cholera are confined to regions of the world with poor sanitation and water hygiene. You can catch cholera from drinking unclean water, eating food that's been in unclean water or eating food that's been handled by an infected person. 

 

We can vaccinate children aged two years and over* against cholera.

Diphtheria is a highly infectious bacterial infection and is typically spread by coughing and sneezing, close contact with infected people or contaminated clothes and bedding. Diphtheria is more common in parts of the world where uptake of vaccination is low.

 

Tetanus is a serious disease caused by bacteria contaminating a wound. The disease is found worldwide, but is more common in resource-poor countries where vaccination is not universal. Symptoms include lockjaw and muscle spasms.

 

Polio is a potentially-paralysing virus that is transmitted through food or water contaminated by infected human faeces or by direct contact with an infectious person. Polio commonly occurs in very few countries but importation of polio remains a risk throughout the world.

 

We can vaccinate children aged six years and over* against diphtheria, tetanus and polio.

Hepatitis A is a highly infectious virus that can cause inflammation of the liver. It is usually transmitted through food or water contaminated by human faeces or by direct contact with an infectious person. Areas with high levels of hepatitis A infection include low-income countries with relatively poor sanitation and hygiene.

We can vaccinate children aged one year and over* against hepatitis A.

Hepatitis B is a viral infection of the liver and is spread by direct contact with blood or bodily fluids of an infected person. Hepatitis B occurs worldwide, with rates of infection higher in some countries than others. Symptoms of hepatitis B include jaundice, abdominal pain and fever.

 

We can vaccinate children aged one year and over* against hepatitis B.

Japanese Encephalitis is a viral infection of the brain. It is found throughout Asia and beyond and is transmitted to humans by mosquitos. Risk of Japanese encephalitis varies on the basis of destination, duration, season and activities. Symptoms of Japanese encephalitis include fever, headache and confusion.

 

We can vaccinate children aged three years and over* against Japanese encephalitis.

Meningitis is a bacterial infection that can cause systemic infection and can be very serious if not treated promptly. The disease is most common in the ‘meningitis belt’ of sub-Saharan Africa. Travellers to Saudi Arabia for the Hajj or Umrah pilgrimages must be vaccinated against Meningitis ACWY.

 

We can vaccinate children aged two years and over* against meningitis ACWY.

Rabies is a rare but very serious viral disease of the brain and nerves, transmitted to humans usually by a bite or scratch from an infected animal. Rabies can be found in many parts of the world, particularly Asia, Africa, and Central and South America.

 

We can vaccinate children aged one year and over* against rabies.

Tick-borne Encephalitis (TBE) is a potentially serious viral infection usually transmitted through the bite of an infected tick. The ticks that cause TBE are mainly found in central, eastern and northern Europe, although at-risk areas also include eastern Russia and some countries in east Asia, including some regions of China and Japan.

 

We can vaccinate children aged one year and over* against tick-borne encephalitis.

Typhoid is acquired by drinking or eating contaminated water or food. Typhoid is mainly found in low income areas of the world where sanitation is poor and clean drinking water is not widely available. High-risk areas include the Indian subcontinent (Bangladesh, Pakistan, India) and Africa.

 

We can vaccinate children aged two years and over (injection), six years and over (oral capsules)* against typhoid.

*All vaccinations are subject to inclusion/exclusion creiteria to determine suitability.

Yellow Fever is a viral infection transmitted predominantly by certain species of day biting mosquitoes. Yellow fever can cause jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes) and bleeding, with severe damage to the major organs. Yellow fever occurs in some areas of tropical Africa and Central and South America.

 

We can vaccinate children aged nine months and over* against yellow fever.
