Travel Clinic

We offer a wide range of travel vaccinations at our pharmacy. If you need vaccinations for travel purposes or occupational health, we are well placed to help you. Our travel vaccination pharmacists will take you through a consultation to establish your vaccination needs and requirements. We also offer antimalarials which can be dispensed at the same appointment.

Vaccinations are very important to protect yourself and your loved one. Also, for your travel insurance to be valid, you need to have done the recommended vaccinations. Some vaccinations have multiple doses so it’s important that you plan to have your vaccination in advance of your departure date, usually 6-8 weeks prior.

We offer bookings and walk-in appointments to suit your needs. Our pharmacists have received specific training in providing travel vaccinations services. The service will be provided in a private consultation room where you can ask any questions you might have during the consultation. It’s important that you bring any previous immunisation history with you to help the pharmacist work out what vaccination you need.

If you are travelling to a certain country and you don't know which vaccination you need to have then there are some good sources of information developed by the NHS. The most well-known and widely used is Fitfortravel. You can choose a destination and you will see a list of vaccinations that are recommended to have and ones that you might consider. Also, it gives you information on the risk of malaria and the need for yellow fever vaccination.

If you are not sure about which vaccination you need to have or which boosters you may need then contact us to speak to one of our pharmacists for a free consultation.


We also offer a range of travel essentials such as mosquito repellents, flight socks, Diarrhoea relief and rehydration therapies. Contact us today to book an appointment or visit us at the pharmacy. We look forward to seeing you.


Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites which are transmitted through bites of infected female anopheles mosquitoes. There are 5 parasite species that cause malaria in humans, and two of these species P.falciparum and P.vivax pose the highest threat.

If you are planning to travel, speak to one of our pharmacists to establish if you require antimalarial drugs. the pharmacist will check the risk of malaria and also the type of activities you will be carrying out to decide if you will need anti-malarial drugs.

There are three types of antimalarial drugs available, doxycycline, Malarone (generic and branded) and Lariam. during your consultation, a pharmacist will explain which antimalarial drugs are suitable for you and the main pros and cons of each type.

If you are planning on travelling, please book a consultation well in advance or visit our pharmacy so that you can receive the maximum projection from the drugs.

Also, the pharmacist will give you advice on how to minimize your risk of mosquito bites and other appropriate precautions for your travel.
