Whether you are planning a summer holiday or about to embark on your first pilgrimage, you may need to visit a travel clinic before you go.
That’s because, depending on your destination, you may need to take extra health precautions.
Travelling can be stressful so let the travel clinic at Bassingbourn Pharmacy help reduce the worry about staying healthy abroad.
What is a travel clinic?
A travel clinic is a special pharmacy that offers specific travel health services. These services include travel vaccinations and general advice for staying healthy when abroad.
Travel clinics are run by pharmacists with special training. Appointments are easy to make and you will be seen quickly and at your convenience.
You will be able to access all the services you need before travelling without having to wait for a GP appointment.
What travel services do travel clinics offer?
Travel clinics are all about preventing you from getting ill when travelling. So, our travel clinics provide the following vaccinations:
- Yellow Fever
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Japanese encephalitis
- Meningitis ACWY
- Tick-borne encephalitis
It is important to speak with us about your requirements at least six weeks before you travel as some of the vaccines will need to be given as soon as possible.
Even if you are a seasoned traveller, you may need to check with your pharmacist whether all your vaccinations are up to date.
