Travelling can expose you to various health risks - without proper vaccinations, your trip could become a nightmare.

Contracting life-threatening diseases

Travelling without proper vaccinations poses a significant risk of contracting severe illnesses such as yellow fever, hepatitis A, typhoid, and Japanese encephalitis, which can result in serious or long-term health complications.

Medical emergencies abroad

Experiencing a medical emergency while travelling can lead to hospitalisation. This situation becomes particularly daunting when the healthcare system is under-resourced and the associated costs are high.

Spreading diseases globally

Remember the COVID-19 pandemic? Contracting a vaccine-preventable disease while travelling could unknowingly initiate an outbreak, contributing to global health crises.

Legal and travel restrictions

Certain countries, such as Kenya, require proof of vaccination, such as a yellow fever certificate, for entry. Failure to comply can result in being held at the airport, denied entry, quarantined, or even facing legal consequences.

You've Got Questions About Your Travel Vaccinations, We've Got Answers

How do I find out what travel vaccines I’ve had?
  1. Check Medical Records: Your primary care physician or general practitioner should have records of all the vaccinations you have received. Contact their office and request your vaccination history.
  2. NHS App or Online Services: If you use the NHS App or have access to online GP services, you may be able to view your vaccination history there.
  3. Vaccination Booklet: If you have been keeping a personal vaccination record booklet, it will list all the vaccinations you’ve received.

It’s recommended to get travel vaccinations at least 4 to 6 weeks before you travel. This allows your body enough time to develop immunity and ensures that you complete any required vaccination courses.

Some travel vaccinations are provided for free by the NHS, including:

  1. Diphtheria, polio, and tetanus (combined booster)
  2. Typhoid
  3. Hepatitis A
  4. Cholera

However, other travel vaccinations, such as those for yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, and rabies, are not typically covered by the NHS and will need to be paid for.

Star Pharmacy offers a private travel clinic for those who require vaccinations before they travel. These vaccinations are chargeable and you can discover the price of each vaccination here.

  1. NHS Services: Visit your GP to find out which travel vaccinations are available for free on the NHS.
  2. Local Clinics: Some NHS walk-in centres or travel clinics in London may offer free vaccinations. Check with local health services.
  3. Travel Health Clinics: While many travel clinics charge for their services, it’s worth checking if any offer certain vaccinations for free or at a reduced cost.

The duration of protection provided by travel vaccinations varies:

  1. Hepatitis A: Lasts at least 1 year with the first dose; a booster can extend this to 25 years or more.
  2. Typhoid: Typically lasts 3 years.
  3. Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Polio: Lasts about 10 years.
  4. Yellow Fever: Provides lifelong protection in most cases, though some countries may require a booster every 10 years.
  5. Cholera: Lasts 2 years.
  6. Rabies: Varies, but typically needs boosters if continued risk is present.
