Travel vaccinations

Routine vaccination protects against serious diseases here in the UK.

If you are planning to travel abroad, it’s possible you may need additional vaccinations to protect you against infectious diseases that are not found here.  For example, yellow fever or malaria.

Most vaccinations should be given at least a month before travel so allow plenty of time to get all the vaccines you need. Ask your GP if you are unsure about vaccination.
