London, United Kingdom (12th July, 2012) – Sameday Doctor, a leading private doctors surgery with clinics based across the UK, highlight the importance of having the appropriate travel vaccinations before leaving the country.
Sameday Doctor’s travel vaccine clinics provide travel advice and vaccinations to clients, offering vaccinations against diseases including Yellow Fever, Hepatitis A, Typhoid Fever, Polio, Diphtheria, and Tetanus.
Sameday Doctor’s consultants recommend the Travel Vaccine Pack for most travellers as it includes two injections to protect against Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio.
Antimalarials and additional vaccines are available, such as Hepatitis B, Meningitis or Rabies. Sameday Doctor also offers other vaccine services including BCG vaccinations against Tuberculosis and Mantoux testing.
A spokesperson for Sameday Doctor commented: “The UK has recently seen the death of a woman who had contracted Rabies in India. This is a stark reminder to all those travelling abroad that travel vaccinations are an essential part of your holiday plans.
“Government regulations are now also in place in some countries to restrict visitors who have not received specific vaccinations; so, to avoid disappointment, please walk in, phone or email to make a travel clinic appointment with us. We advise that you visit our Travel Clinic 3-4 weeks prior to your travel to discuss your travel vaccine needs.”
