Travel vaccines should be considered for anybody that is travelling outside of the UK to a country that has a risk of infectious disease. Whilst many of your routine vaccinations will protect you against a number of diseases, they are unable to provide cover against some of the diseases you could contract overseas.
Our private travel clinic in Canary Wharf provides the recommended travel vaccinations for most destinations, including diphtheria, polio, hepatitis A, typhoid, and yellow fever. Some of the most popular destinations you may require vaccinations for include:
If your destination isn’t mentioned above, we would advise checking with a health professional at our clinic to ensure you will be covered and safe during your travels. Depending on your area of travel, we would advise coming in to see us 8 weeks before you travel, this is because some vaccines need to be given in advance to ensure your body develops immunity. Other vaccinations will involve a number of doses spread over a longer period of time.
When Autumn rolls around, it’s that time of year to consider having a flu jab. The flu virus is highly infectious and affects hundreds of thousands of people in the UK every year. With London being such a densely populated area, your chances of contracting the flu here are maximised. Think about how many people you come into contact with simply on your daily commute to work?
Dry coughs, shaking chills, fatigue and high fevers; the common symptoms associated with the flu. Luckily, if you’re generally healthy these symptoms will generally clear up within 7-10 days. However, for high-risk groups, catching the flu can result in severe complications and in extreme cases, can even be fatal. If you fall under any of the following groups, getting the flu jab is strongly recommended:
Whilst these are the highest risk members of the population, if you can be categorised into any of the following groups it is worth being vaccinated against the flu:
By choosing to have your flu vaccination privately, you can avoid the long waits for an appointment with the NHS and get seen at a time that works for you. Wherever we can, we will do our very best to schedule you in with a GP in Canary Wharf on the same day.
